Developing Student Confidentiality and Trust
In order for any student-led program to be successful, students need to feel a connection to the adults around them.
It is important that students can trust the adult’s investment in their voice, passions and ideas. It is equally important that they can count on adults to be confidential.
Caution: If a student reports to an adult about abuse, self or other harm, illegal activity, etc., an adult is required to contact authorities. Clear communication about the parameters of confidentiality to students is imperative.
