What are the start up and ongoing costs for WEB?

Cost for attending the three day Basic Training is the greatest expense of the program.  Once a school has made its initial investment in training their Coordinators, the ongoing costs are minimal. The must have costs are: t-shirts for the WEB Leaders and Coordinators, copy costs for Leader training handbooks, minimal supplies for the activities and nametags for the Leaders and 6th graders. Costs for the year long program that runs throughout the school year will vary, depending on the number and type of activities. We estimate that a middle school with a 6th grade class of 300 could run a very solid program on $1200 per year and that number could be dramatically reduced with community donations.
