Student Engagement

 

Today’s students are shaping the future for children. Will you join us?

 

 

We harness the power of high school and college students to make a lasting, positive impact on the lives of children.  By teaming up with us, you’ll join a national network of student activists mobilizing their communities to take action for kids!

Through our unique and flexible program, you’ll build a school club to host fundraisers, meet with lawmakers, learn about issues affecting children in the US and around the world, educate your peers, and so much more! Students drive their own participation, so you can engage according to your interests. We provide all the support, training and resources you’ll need to be successful.
