Where Everyone Belongs


Where Everybody Belongs (WEB) Program @ Dana Middle School

Where Everybody Belongs (WEB) Program @ Dana Middle School


WEB, which stands for “Where Everybody Belongs” is a middle school orientation and transition program that welcomes 6th graders and makes them feel comfortable throughout the first year of their middle school experience. 


Built on the belief that students can help students succeed, the program trains mentors from Dana’s 8th grade class to be WEB Leaders. As positive role models, WEB Leaders are mentors and student leaders who guide the 6th graders to discover what it takes to be successful during the transition to middle school and help facilitate 6th grade success.


More and more studies show that if students have a positive experience their first year in 

middle school, their chances for success increase dramatically. WEB provides the structure 

for 6th graders to receive support and guidance from 8th graders who have been through 

the challenges that middle school poses and understand that the transition to a larger 

school can sometimes be overwhelming.


WEB also acts as an anti-bullying program for your school by providing it with a cadre of 

student leaders who look for bullying behavior and help stop it. WEB gives older students 

permission to be aware of and report any negative behavior they see, creating a safer 

school for everybody.
