A troubled teen who accepts help and works to change his or her character and behavior is the best possible role model for other troubled teens. At FFS they are called "seniors," regardless of their academic class, and may receive anchor pins, internships, or other perks that distinguish them from newcomers and "middle-of-the-roaders." These seniors are student leaders, the ones we depend on to lead by example--to be aware of the impact they have on others without succumbing to pride or selfishness. It's their job to reach out and start sharing their experience, strength, and hope in earnest, regardless of how they are received, or of how shy or frustrated or ineffectual they might feel. This is not an easy task, but if they work at it, these students discover leadership qualities they never knew they had.
