It’s never too early to introduce a legacy of leadership, especially when your learners are so eager to soak up the world around them. With a National Elementary Honor Society (NEHS) chapter at your school, your students have a place where their passion can blossom as they develop into confident young leaders.
Living the Four Pillars
NEHS promotes the four pillars of scholarship, responsibility, service, and leadership early on. Through exploration of each pillar, student members learn many valuable life lessons, including the importance of personal responsibility and giving back to the community.
Tools for Their Future
An NEHS chapter brings with it exclusive tools and resources for your early leaders that not only help them in their endeavors as NEHS student members, but leave a lasting impact on them during a critical developmental age. With NEHS, you unlock:
- Culture of Caring. NEHS fosters character development and future academic success. In fact, one of the strengths of NEHS is its emphasis on the importance of both character and academics, putting student members on a path to becoming well-rounded individuals.
- Springboard to Leadership. When you adopt the NEHS program, you set your students up for success throughout their academic careers. Younger students also look up to your budding leaders, motivating your entire student body and uplifting your school culture.
- “Leadership Is…” Webinar Series. In this leadership coaching series created especially for an elementary audience, student leaders are invited to build their leadership mindset by reflecting on what leadership truly is.
- Service Planning Mindset. NEHS advisers get unlimited access to service planning templates and resources, including nearly 10,000 project ideas in the National Student Project Database. This creates a “give back” mindset and weaves continued service into the everyday of a learning community.
