Single Shepherd Team

The goal of the Single Shepherd initiative is to pair every middle and high school student grades 6 – 12 in Districts 7 and 23 with a dedicated school counselor or social worker who will support them through graduation and college enrollment.

A Single Shepherd is a mentor with the skills to listen to, advocate for, and connect students with resources for success in school, and in their future endeavors in college and career. A Shepherd is experienced and skilled to be able to support students in making academic and personal choices.
