Austin Voices Programs and Initiatives
Austin Voices for Education and Youth is currently focusing our work of strengthening schools and expanding opportunities for Austin’s youth by organizing around and implementing four goals:
- Encouraging School Reform by organizing parents, students, teachers and community members into community-based planning teams
- Buidling a new generation of young leaders through the Stand Up program that trains youth mobilizers
- Supporting families to reduce social and economic barriers for students through four school-based Family Resource Centers at Reagan, Webb, Pearce and Dobie
- Increasing the odds for graduation through dropout prevention with outreach specialists at Travis, Lanier and Reagan
