Student voice and leadership plays an important role in all aspects of community engagement – from school and district decision-making to having meaningful conversations about the issues affecting a community. 

As Friday’s keynote, Molly Messenger, Director of Pittsfield Listens in Pittsfield, NH, will unpack the meaning of authentic student leadership in communities and schools and how it leads towards more equitable systems of education and student engagement. Parents and educators in attendance will learn how they can lift up and support student leadership in their communities, whereas youth will learn how they can harness their voices to emerge as leaders in their schools, towns and cities.
