Democracy in Action: Dilemmas of Student Government by the Students, for the Students

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

In this student-facilitated workshop, students, and the adults who support them, are invited to bring their own dilemmas of student government for discussion and advice. Working in critical friends-style groups, we will explore dilemmas brought by schools whose student governments are facing a challenge or whose schools do not yet have functioning student government structures. Our hope is that students will have the chance to connect with other students in an opportunity to further the reach of their voice within their schools. Participants are encouraged to come as a team of student government participants and the adults who support them. Participants are encouraged to think about a dilemma or school issue they are facing in advance of the workshop.
