 Ames High Student and Family Advocates

The Student and Family Advocate is available to support students by identifying and addressing student mental health needs, providing crisis intervention, and teaching social/emotional skill development. The Student and Family Advocate provides individualized student support, promotes student engagement and acts as a liaison between school, parents and community resources to maximize education opportunities to each child. The Student and Family Advocate also serves as a point person to parents and guardians to support them in accessing community resources to address student or family needs.
