An advisory program can be one of the most effective tools in building relationships between students and an adult who advocates for them. The list of activities are designed to be used in a short time period of 15 - 20 minutes and have very little planning demands by the teacher. The only requirement is to have enthusiasm and fun!

The month of October is an appropriate time for teachers to refresh students about their responsibilities not only at school but home as well. This month also may have parent-teacher conferences when goal setting is emphasized.
