We cultivate innovative, resilient, and engaged high school students. We provide students with the tools and support they need to lead change in their schools and community.
Empowering our Voices
Oregon Student Voice’s Empowering Our Voices Rally brings students and educators together to learn and confront systemic K-12 concerns using student voice. We support students in becoming innovative, resilient, and civic-minded individuals engaged in their schools and communities.
Participants attend a half-day training where they learn about topics ranging from the importance of student voice in decision making to how to advocate for K-12 reform at the state level. Participants then head to the Oregon State Capitol to show the power of student voice by meeting with legislators to discuss issues in their school.
HOW TO GUIDES
Our how to guides are designed to support students and adults in working together to address challenges using student voice. Each series provides insights into how students can confront systemic concerns and create lasting change in their school and community.
Series #1: how to improve your community using your voicE
We offer trainings to students to support their ability to instigate change. Each training is designed and delivered by students for students; we welcome adult participates. Trainings are held bi-monthly virtually on a Wednesday. We post slides to the trainings online for students that cannot attend.
