Skills like commitment, leadership, effective communication, and being able to work successfully in a group all come from participating in a club or organization. Joining a club is a great way to make friends, develop leadership skills, and boost your college resumé.

    Membership Requirements

    The qualifications for membership in the National Honor Society Chapters of all Broward Public High Schools will be in compliance with the general requirements as set forth in the Handbooks of the Florida Chapter of the National Honor Society and of the National Honor Society itself. That is, achievement in the following four areas will be necessary for membership: Scholarship, Service, Leadership, and Character.


    Students are assumed to be of good character unless there is documentation of disciplinary action taken by the school, community or state for serious or persistent misconduct on the part of the student.


    It will be necessary for a student to accumulate 30 hours of documented service from the time of the student’s entry into high school to be eligible for NHS membership. Only service hours that apply to The Student Volunteer Service Program and documented on the forms provided for use in that program will be accepted as verification of service rendered.


    Achievement in the area of leadership will be determined by:

    2. Letter from a teacher, administrator, or other school staff member documenting two specific instances in which the student demonstrated leadership.

    4. A combination of one example of leadership from either 1 or 2 combined with a letter from a community leader, a religious leader, or an employer documenting a specific instance in which the student demonstrated leadership.

ProStart students are closely connected to industry experts through guest speakers, class mentors, tours of local facilities, hosting student competitions, and more – all to ensure real-world experience is brought directly to the classroom.

    Work and Learn

Mentors help students make the connection between their present performance and their future career. Students also learn the importance of arriving on time prepared for work, teamwork and accountability.

  • Women of Tomorrow (WOT)

    Sponsor: Ms. Thompson

    Women of Tomorrow mentees are part of a small group of young women at their high schools who meet once per month with at least one Women of Tomorrow mentor throughout their high school careers. Mentees participate in monthly mentoring sessions, career-focused field trips, and specialized college campus visits, and in 12th grade may apply for Women of Tomorrow scholarship opportunities to pursue higher education.
    Mentees begin the program in 9th or 10th grade and stay in the program throughout their high school careers. In any given Women of Tomorrow Mentoring Group, there are mentees in all four grade levels — 9th, 10th, 11th, and 12th grades. Mentees are diverse young women with differing strengths and weaknesses, so they may learn from and help each other, in addition to benefiting from the mentoring they receive.

    How To Join:
    Mentees are selected for participation in the Women of Tomorrow Program by their school-based Women of Tomorrow School Coordinators, mostly through referrals by teachers, guidance, and/or administration. All mentees must complete annual mentee applications or mentee update forms, corresponding releases, and the mentee pledge. While participation in the program is voluntary, once enrolled, all mentees are required to attend all Mentoring Sessions and must have no unexcused absences to be eligible for Women of Tomorrow scholarship opportunities.
