Opportunity for HS youth: Be a Youth4Ed Lead Activist – Dec 5

Posted by National Youth Leadership Council on November 19, 2019

Youth4Ed is recruiting Lead Activists from high schools across the nation to pioneer service-learning projects that support educational equity. NYLC will provide training and resources and in turn, Lead Activists will create a school or afterschool-based Youth4Ed club to investigate, plan and execute a service-learning project over the course of one year, after which they will share their experiences with other leaders in a digital forum.

In fighting for education equity, we hope to form a fair education system for all Americans. By empowering young people to fight for their communities, rather than imposing change, we are encouraging students to learn about their realities and enabling them to spur change from within. Service-learning is the best path towards education equity because it empowers young people to transform their communities deliberately in partnership with adults.

Applications are due December 5, 2019.
