About the Student Voice Learning Lab
The Student Voice Learning Lab is a training series open to all K-12 students across the United States that introduces the fundamentals of how education systems work and how students can be a part of addressing structural inequities in our schools. Virtual Learning Lab workshops are hosted twice a month for one hour through Zoom, and members of the Learning Lab can attend as many, or as few, workshops as they would like. Because workshops are open to all K-12 students across the United States, Learning Lab members are encouraged to invite their peers to participate. More information about the Student Voice Learning Lab can be found at StuVoice.org/learning-lab.
About the Student Voice Ambassadors Program
The Student Voice Ambassadors Program guides a cohort of 14 students from across the United States through the design and execution of a community-based project focused on an education justice issue that interests them. Ambassadors submit a project proposal, and Student Voice provides the resources and support they need to create change at the school and local levels, including access to a community of peers engaging in similar work, one-on-one support, and our national network of resources. Ambassadors will be provided a $1,000 stipend for the year, as well as access to optional paid opportunities with Student Voice partners. This program will require a time commitment of around two to five hours a week. More information about the Student Voice Ambassadors Program can be found at StuVoice.org/ambassadors.
About the Student Voice Journalism Fellowship
The Student Voice Journalism Fellowship is a cohort of 18 students from across the United States who are passionate about reporting on issues within their local and national school communities. Fellows come from a diverse range of experience levels, but all have the opportunity to hone their existing skills and explore new mediums of storytelling. Over the course of a school year, fellows attend skill-building workshops, connect with industry professionals, and craft narratives about their school experiences through print and other media. Fellows will be provided a $1,000 stipend for the year, as well as access to optional paid opportunities with Student Voice partners. This program will require a time commitment of around five hours a week. More information about the Student Voice Journalism Fellowship can be found at StuVoice.org/journalism-fellows.
About the Student Voice Organizing Fellowship

Through immersion in a community of peers committed to equity in schools, fellows will develop skills such as effective communication with peers and decision-makers, identifying issues and solutions in their schools and building capacity to organize student power in their communities. Fellows will be provided a $1,000 stipend for the year, as well as access to optional paid opportunities with Student Voice partners. This program will require a time commitment of around two to five hours a week. More information about the Student Voice Organizing Fellowship can be found at StuVoice.org/Organizing-Fellows.
