We provide role models who encourage teens to in turn become positive role models for their peers on their campuses.

For those who wish to excel in making an impact upon those around them, we provide leadership training that comes with an opportunity to be a high school volunteer leader in a middle school club and receive many of the volunteer hours needed to graduate from high school!

We meet every Wednesday that is both a school day and an early dismissal day. We meet at 12:30 in the cafeteria. This gives students the opportunity to be a part of Campus Life, then have plenty of time to participate in school sports and other clubs and activities that Washington High School offers.
