How We Can Center Young People’s Voices in Creating Education’s Future

We’re all here talking about what the future of education will look like for young people...but what are young people thinking and feeling right now as they dream and plan? And how do we make sure we’re not just listening, but collaborating and engaging with their ambitions, ideas, and goals—then building systems to support them.

We’ll share Roadtrip Nation’s newest storytelling project with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation—Possible Dreams, Possible Paths—created in collaboration with nine students over the last year. We’ll also cover key takeaways from Equitable Futures’ in-depth research into how young people are thinking about their futures—and share how youth-serving organizations can apply the learnings.
