Description

What started in 2012 as weekly Twitter chats using #StuVoice has grown into a national student-led call to action for more equitable schools. Student Voice is by-students, for-students 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that works in all 50 states to position and equip students as storytellers, organizers, and partners who advocate for student-driven solutions to educational inequity and injustice. 

Student Voice's work is driven by the belief that in order to achieve equity in schools, power must be meaningfully shifted towards young people most marginalized by the education system. Therefore, we model what we ask of institutions by actively elevating students to positions of decision making power across our work, starting with our entirely youth-led team. Composed of 15 high school and college students, our team brings together young people with deep experience in community action in distinct schools and contexts.

Applications will be considered on a rolling basis. Student Voice will begin contacting applicants for interviews on Monday, December 6, 2021.
