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.
