Welcome, students!

Are you a young person who wants the future to look better than the world we are in today?  Are you someone who thinks that school—particularly history class—needs to change, so that you can learn what you need and learn more effectively?

We believe you deserve school to be a place that helps you thrive. We want to hear from you, and work with you to ensure that your voice is heard in the world of education reform.

There are three different ways we collaborate with youth people:
