A middle school in Gibsonton, Fla., has trained a team of student ambassadors to connect with transfer students as they transition to the school in an effort to curb bullying and dropping out. Ambassadors do team-building exercises with the new students, check on them during school and sometimes eat lunch with them. "They understand their role is to reach out to other kids," dropout prevention specialist Paul Burke said.
