Welcome! Student Junto is a collective group of two representatives from each grade working together to create a better community in TYWLS of Astoria. Sub-committees, run by the grade representatives will be created to focus and address their set goals to improve TYWLS
Our goal: This is a club for the mutual improvement of ourselves, our school, and our community. The purpose is to create student leaders who will be future leaders. During our time here at Student Junto, we would like to really hear the voice of the students. With sub-committees, the representatives will work together in order to make TYWLS a stronger community.

Do you feel you have a good relationship with the students in your grade?
This matters because you are the voice of your peers. Any issues students have they should feel comfortable enough to come to you.
Will you go out of your way to make sure the needs of the students in your grade are met?
Are your goals realistic?
