What is “Youth Voice?”

When we say “Youth Voice,” we refer to the practice of centering young people’s identities, interests, needs, and perspectives in decisions that affect their learning and lives. This requires supporting youth in positions of genuine leadership and power over those decisions.

Youth have unique skills and perspectives that can facilitate transformative changes in our learning environments and communities. Youth Voice benefits everyone.
