Students will become deeply passionate about education and the systems that impact their lives; information from our program helps participants examine the deep-rooted issues in the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD), understand the institutional impacts on their educational attainment and career, and, most importantly, learn how to take action to influence systemic change.
We are dedicated to providing our students with tools to build their confidence and a platform to interface with adults who have decision-making power over their education, such as elected officials and other high-ranking officers. Skills built and refined in our program include: media training, public speaking, critical thinking, team-building and more!
Students in our program are advocating, influencing, and supporting relevant policies that impact educational outcomes for themselves and LAUSD Students. In 2014, our students wrote, organized, and pushed for the successful passage of a resolution that created the ‘Student Board Member’ position on the LAUSD School Board to elevate student voices in decision-making. The position is still in tact.
Thank you! We will be in touch shortly.
