Examples of activities developed by award-winning schools includes the Community Mentor Program at Willsboro Central School.
Every 11th and 12th grade student at Willsboro Central School has a community leader as a mentor who helps guide them through the college process. The mentor/mentee pairs work together for two years, visiting colleges and building college and financial aid knowledge. The entire class of 2013 at Willsboro Central School was accepted to college.
