What is the Wingman Program?
Wingman is BRMS’s student leadership program! We began our Wingman program last year with the hopes of helping our students feel more included and accepted, while emphasizing social emotional learning in our school community. Below is the description of the Wingman Program. For more information, check out the Dylan’s Wings of Change website. www.dylanswingsofchange.org
“Wingman is a unique youth leadership program from Dylan’s Wings of Change that creates empathy and acceptance leading to inclusion for all children. Participants explore the qualities of a Wingman such as courage, perseverance and resilience. They are recognized for their acts that extend far beyond respect and kindness. Wingman builds stronger, more connected communities.”
BRMS Wingman Student Leaders
A group of select student leaders, who are our current 8th graders, were chosen and trained last summer to be Wingman student leaders. This fall, a select group of 7th graders will be trained as Wingman student leaders and they will partner with our 8th grade Wingman to deliver classroom lessons on empathy and acceptance. Wingman students also help out with events at school and in our community, such as being tour guides at Open Houses, and assisting with the Sticker Shock Campaign.
Wingman meets the first and third Wednesday of each month after school from 3:00pm-4:00pm. Our first meeting after school will be October 6. Check out our Clubs and Activities Calendar to see when future meetings will be!
