Project Description


The goal of MSF is to help relieve middle schoolers’ anxiety about the transition to high school. At MSF, 8th graders have the opportunity to ask Youth Advisory Committee (YAC) representatives any questions they have about high school. YAC-ers answer with candor and speak from their individual perspectives, showing middle schoolers that there are many different ways to navigate high school, and choices are theirs to make. YAC responses point to the value of knowing yourself, making choices that are right for you, and being prepared to deal with the consequences of your actions.
