Sources of Strength Community Event

Big picture

We are excited to invite you and all members of our community to our first DCSD Sources of Strength Community Night that has been rescheduled for Monday, April 11th, 6:30-8:30pm at the Parker Arts, Culture & Events Center.


Our goal is to provide an overview of the program, highlight the strengths and share about the amazing work that is happening across our district. The night will feature student peer leaders, school staff and our Guest Speaker, Jarrod Hindman, Chief Operating Officer at Sources of Strength. We hope you will join us to hear the messages of Hope, Help and Strength and partner with us in sharing them in our community and beyond.


Sources of Strength is a strength-based, comprehensive wellness program that focuses on suicide prevention. The program is based on a relational connections model that uses teams of peer leaders mentored by adult advisors to encourage students to develop strengths in their life and to change peer social norms about help seeking.


We will also be hosting tables with members from various youth organizations and mental health partners in our community to distribute information and answer questions. It takes a village to address the needs of our students, and we are grateful to our community partners for their support.


Registration will be required prior to attendance and is available to reserve your free seats at ParkerArts.org. We will also send you an invite via Google Calendar as a placeholder and reminder for the upcoming event.
