Program Overview

The EQ (Emotional Quotient- the ability to value, understand, and handle emotions) Ambassador program is a select group of students on campus who are peer mentors and leaders who support other students. EQ Ambassadors provide peer mentoring through one-on-one and small group interactions. This resource is vital because it prioritizes students' mental health, ultimately supporting their academic success and engagement in school. When students may not feel comfortable talking to staff or teachers, EQ Ambassadors offer the peer perspective that adults on campus cannot provide.

To facilitate self-advocacy, students can access this support through self-referrals. Please click on the link below or scan the QR Code. You can encourage your student to email Mr. Lopez ( to sign up and find an Ambassador. Get to know your SES EQ ambassadors below.

Yoltzin E-R.

Hey, I am Yoltzin. I have been at the School of Engineering and Sciences for 6 years now and I am a Senior. My favorite class at SES is AP Computer Science because we get to make apps and collaborate with friends. I like to hang out with friends and go to the gym. I became an EQ ambassador to do my best in supporting the students here and making a better environment in this school. I am available on Mondays after school until 4:30 pm if you ever want to come by and speak your mind.

Ani C.

Hey everybody, I’m Ani. This is my fourth year here at SES and I’m currently in the last stretch of my senior year. My favorite class is government because I think it’s important and fun to apply to everyday life. I played soccer, volleyball, and basketball for SES. I became an EQ ambassador because I know it’s not always as easy to talk to adults as it is to talk to one of your peers, so I want to make myself available to anyone that might want support from a fellow student. If you want any advice or just a listening ear, please feel free to reach out. I’m here after school every week on Tuesdays.
