Student Voice
Students are the focus, but they are also our partners. We believe they can advocate for their own solutions to educational equity, and we work with them to do just that. EmpowerEd is a statewide network of partners and students that amplifies the voices of young people in our state. Our students learn the tools of civic engagement and how to elevate their personal stories and experiences to inform research, policy and advocacy.
