  • Mission: Voices of Youth in Chicago Education (VOYCE) is a citywide youth organizing initiative created to address the high dropout rate and low college enrollment rate for Chicago Public Schools (CPS) students. VOYCE’s leadership includes student organizers from seven community-based organizations and 12 CPS high schools committed to create lasting change.
  • Description:  VOYCE builds on community based organizations’ histories of organizing both parents and students around school reform issues such as creating a policy change granting in-state tuition for undocumented students, securing the construction of new schools to relieve overcrowding, developing schools as community learning centers, and more.
