Student Power

We are proud to announce our newest initiative, Student Power.
This pilot project includes three powerful, hands-on grant opportunities:

  • Project Citizen 

  • UTD Effective Citizenship

  • Inner-Club Council

High school students are engaging in project-based learning as they explore the steps involved in creating policy change on a local, state, or federal level. Students learn to identify and research a local public policy issue of their choosing. The grant includes a field trip to a local government meeting, and $500 towards materials and costs of field trip. 
Also, we offer teacher training in the steps toward impacting public policy

For the 2019-20 school year, 30 Student Power projects will be funded throughout the County. Interested teachers please contact us for further information.
