Who We Are
A+SVT is a program of A+ Education Partnership and VOICES for Alabama's Children, two non-profit, non-partisan organizations advocating for Alabama's students.
Students’ perspectives are important and should be at the table when making important policy decisions. The A+ Student VOICES Team is a state-wide, student-led advocacy group for students in grades 9-12 that guides students to be civically-engaged leaders and to be a powerful voice in public policy. Students who participate will help shape the program’s components and priorities while receiving advocacy training and experience. Students will have the opportunity to continue their participation throughout their time in high school.
What we do
Since the A+ Student VOICES Team was founded in 2018, the Team has traveled to Washington D.C. to speak to a national conference on citizenship, met with Alabama Superintendent Dr. Eric Mackey, and participated in local advocacy to ensure AP classes stay in a member's school. In previous years, the Team has focused on student mental health. The 2020-21 A+SVT are striving to elevate student voice on topics such as mental health and COVID-19 through the creation of a student advocacy group that interacts with decision-makers.
