The Sources of Strength Podcast and Blog is a collaboration between a diverse group of student leaders and caring adults within Hopewell Valley Central High School.  The goal of Sources is to spread messages of hope, help, and strength throughout our school and community.  We recognize that we all go through good times and bad times and our mission is to make sure that during the rough times no one gets so overwhelmed or hopeless that they want to give up.
