Join us to explore these questions with your youth adult-team:

What does it look and sound like when young people partner with adults as they shape their educational experience?                                                            

  • How can we learn from other schools engaged in similar work to elevate student voice?

What are our next steps to address the youth-adult relationship in our school, ensuring that both power and responsibility in learning and education are shared?  
 Overview of the Day

What will the day include? Take part in the morning interactive “Sharing Sessions” to redefine the realm of possibility. You will be informed and inspired by stories of schools around Vermont where young people have been partnering with adults to shape all aspects of their schools - classroom learning, behavior management, innovative governance structures, continuous improvement efforts….and more. Following a networking lunch, participants will have the opportunity to suggest a topic for an Open Space conversation to explore what it means to be part of current Vermont change efforts.
