Discussions will be led by Wareham High graduates Brianna King, Darien Fernandez, Kamri Lopes, Ashley Hachey and Brianna Gamble.

The first meeting of the group will be an information session at 10 a.m. on Sunday, January 5, at the Wareham Boys and Girls Club, 13 Highland St. 

Discussion topics will include careers, mental health, financial literacy, professionalism, self-care, reflection, nutrition, and understanding cultural and racial bias.

At the end of each session, the discussion will be opened to all students and parents, and refreshments will be served.
