The HOPE Sunshine Club Mission: The purpose of the HOPE Sunshine Clubs is to educate, support, and develop problem solving, coping and leadership skills, while fostering the prevention of suicide, bullying and substance abuse. The club members will learn to work together to accomplish a common goal of helping each other and their community. The club meetings are held once a week for one hour with the club teacher sponsor in attendance. The student members are encouraged to be innovative and creative with each subject discussed. Below is a guide to what the club weekly meetings will discuss and the subjects they will cover. Students must have the flexibility to deal with whatever problems and issues they are dealing with whenever the need arises. FISP will provide information about each subject to be explored and presented at the HUGS for HOPE Hug-a-Thon. At meetings in which there are discussions chairs can be arranged in a circle.
