Young Voices was featured in Sunday’s front page article about education in Central Falls. In addition to discussing how our work is of national significance, the article features interviews with three Central Falls youth involved in our Leadership Transformation Academy at the high school.
With the support of the Nellie Mae Education Foundation, we have provided weekly leadership training to students at Central Falls High School. The students have met regularly with school administration. They also surveyed the whole student body to get their input on their school’s Reform Plan, and used this data to create an Action Plan to improve their school. This Action Plan will be the basis of student organizing at the school for the next two years.
