Student Voice is calling on Charleston County, South Carolina’s young leaders to join them at the Charleston Student Voice Summit, hosted at the College of Charleston Addlestone Library, Room 227 on Saturday, September 7, 2019. In partnership with the Quality Education Project, the Safe Schools Project, the Avery Research Center at the College of Charleston and the Lowcountry Students for Political Action, Student Voice will convene high school students for a day of community building, story sharing and an introduction to the student voice movement.
Participating students will take part in a roundtable discussion regarding their experiences in the educational system, attend breakout sessions hosted by summit co-sponsors on a range of pertinent subjects—including racial disparities in the Charleston County School District, school safety and politics of local & state education policy, receive the opportunity to engage with notable local advocates and create action plans to transform conversations into action.
For all participants, registration for the event is free of charge. While the morning event is only open to registered high school students, the public and all press are welcome at the afternoon event, beginning at 1:45 pm. For interested high school students, the registration form for the Charleston Student Voice Summit, as well as more information, is available online at StuVoice.org/events/charleston.
