The future of education advocacy work is making way for youth voice and leadership.

Take part in the Youth Education Advocates Series!​

We know that students are the people most impacted by education policy and advocacy, and we want to create more space for youth voices in this important work. We are committed to leveling the advocacy playing field and empowering young people to become our state’s key thinkers, advocates, and leaders in the education space.

We are calling on young people to share their voices by crafting a powerful blog post, op-ed, video essay or other advocacy piece on an education issue that matters to them. Learn more and participate by contacting us.
