We create leadership opportunities for young people to transform their schools so all youth graduate with the skills and motivation to reach their dreams.

We believe that as a critical mass of young people take responsibility for themselves, for each other, and for their education they have the power to immediately improve student culture and school climate and organize more effectively with their peers to win long-term systemic changes. Our innovative Culture Change strategies result in higher graduation, college attendance and retention rates, more class participation, the creation of more meaningful youth leadership opportunities, and a greater sense of connection and responsibility students have towards their peers and their education.
