June Workshops: Student Activism 101

For the past couple of years, the NYC Student Union has ended its year with June workshops in MS. 51 eighth grade classes. In these workshops, we teach the students about the steps to creating change, and how they can adress problems in their school and education system. We also encourage them to join the Student Union next year, when they start high school. We have a had a lot of success in the past, and we have some new ideas for improvement.

This year, we’re also hoping to reach out to more middle schools. If anyone works in, attends, or is a parent in a middle school and you think the school would be interested in having us come, please get in touch with me! You can comment on this post, or email me at Thanks!
