This school year, our students have chosen to rename our Youth Leadership Cohort as the Youth Voice Project (YVP). They believe this new name better represents their efforts to help students discover and utilize their voices positively, impacting the systems they engage with daily. We are expanding the YVP from 8 to 15 students this year and extending our program duration from a 3-month cohort to a 6-month initiative. During this period, we will work closely with students, focusing on continuous improvement strategies, leadership skills, event planning, communication, and problem-solving abilities. The group will also be responsible for planning and executing two projects centered around youth voice and engagement. Please share this opportunity with high school students in your networks!
