As many schools are grappling with the continued challenges presented by COVID-19, it is crucial to solicit timely, actionable feedback from students.

Engaging in informal, semi-structured conversations with students enables educators to learn more about the successes and opportunities that contribute to positive learning environments at school, whether in-person, remote, or any combination of the two. Consider the tips presented in the following blog post to guide planning, facilitation, and reflection when collecting students’ feedback on their experiences.

America’s Promise & AllState Foundation | Youth Leading Racial Healing

This Challenge will advance positive youth development, encourage youth civic engagement, and strengthen young people’s career skills by activating youth-led efforts to promote racial equity and address systemic racism. The Power of Youth Challenge provides young people (ages 13-19) across the U.S. with the opportunity to identify a need in their communities related to racial healing and apply for a $250 grant to support a (COVID-safe) youth-designed and youth-led service project.
