Student Voice Hosts Leadership Event for Waterloo Youth Organizations

Students will participate in roundtables and discussions about their school and community.

Student Voice is working with Youth Art Team, Hip Hop Literacy, Waterloo Writing Project, Waterloo Youth Council, Teen Trust, and Waterloo Schools Link Crew to host a half-day student leadership event. The event is on Saturday, April 27 from 11 a.m. – 3 p.m. at the Waterloo Center for the Arts. The leadership event hopes to build students’ confidence and storytelling skills to be able to affect change in the Cedar Valley.

Students throughout the U.S. are participating in workshops, storytelling lessons, and roundtables, learning how to affect change in their own school. Student Voice will provide the platform for Waterloo-area students to openly discuss problems in their community and determine the best steps to address them in an action-planning workshop.

The media is invited to attend the event.
