Let’s Build Relationships, Not Walls.
This year we are working to close the belief gap, a product of unequal expectations based on race and zip code. To close it, we need Relationship Centered Schools that value student voice, invest in staff and create space for building relationships. We need schools that build relationships, not walls.
Students like Mayahuel (left) are advocating for RCS to make their schools and communities better places to live.
Alongside other organizations and peers, they spoke in favor of the Safe Place School District resolution in their city to ensure schools stand with all students and become safe and welcoming spaces. Because of their efforts, the resolution passed! For Mayahuel, this victory pushes them to continue uniting their peers to make all schools, “safe places where teachers are here for us no matter your immigration status, your religion or the color of your skin.”
Young people are more engaged than ever in becoming leaders in their communities and continue to break down negative stereotypes that they face every day as low-income and students of color. Support their leadership with a donation of $60 (the cost of sending one student to Sacramento). Your donation helps us train youth as leaders among their peers, and provides the opportunity for hundreds of young people across the state to make a change in their communities.
All donations are tax-deductible
