Thank you for standing with us, and with our youth, from wherever you are.

Though we were saddened to cancel this year’s Pros&Conversation event, our annual celebration of youth voice, we’ve been humbled by the outpouring of support.

You helped us raise over $84,000.

To our network of supporters: your contributions, kindness, and encouragement have enabled us to be there for our students and teachers when they need it most. Thanks to your support, our programming has evolved creatively to meet our partners’ new needs. We’ve maintained strong relationships with our youth and teachers to keep students learning now. And we’re poised to return to classrooms, ready to take on new challenges, when schools reopen.

We’ve also doubled down on our commitment to amplify youth voices by publishing student perspectives on life during COVID-19. By reading and sharing our students’ stories, you’ve honored their voices with us–not by gathering in person at Pros&Conversation, but by allowing the power of their writing to bridge gaps and collapse distance.
