Student Voice is a for-students, by-students nonprofit organization spearheading a social movement to integrate student voices into the global education conversation. We believe students should be included in conversations and decisions that affect their lives, especially in education, since students have a unique perspective on that system. Our social reach allows us to amplify and aggregate student voices through dialogue and facilitated discussions, such as our weekly Twitter chats that take place Mondays at 8:30 pm EST via #stuvoice.
