Empowering School: Getting Everyone on Board to Help Teenagers by William L. Fibkins

William L. Fibkins' Empowering School program has helped thousands of young people become better listeners, quit smoking or drinking, stay in school, increase their academic performance, and help each other through crisis.

The key, says Fibkins, is getting everyone on board: getting everyone in your school to own and share responsibility for your students' healthy development. This includes each person or group with a vested interest in students:

  • administrators
  • counselors
  • peer helping students
  • community members
  • teachers
  • support staff and select parents
  • recovering students
The author shares stories and information about how the Empowering School works, including the seven steps to creating one:
  • 1. establishing the Empowering School Team
  • 2. assessing your school's needs
  • 3. setting goals
  • 4. selecting the facilitator
  • 5. developing the program according to your school's needs
  • 6. training the team
  • 7. putting the plan into action
In addition to the core program, The Empowering School includes six related sample programs: Smoking Cessation, Alcohol Abuse, Addicted Students Identification and Intervention, Eating Disorders, Alternative School, and School Crisis.
