Student Voices | Florida Students United

About Us

FAU’s School Leaders Program coordinates a collaboration with student representatives from approximately 10 student-led, adult-supported organizations in Florida. These groups engage in developing strategies and opportunities related to student support, engagement, and collective impact. Considering the traumatic impact of the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic, social injustice experienced by historically discriminated families and communities, and other civic and leadership issues that are of deep concern to Florida students, participants discuss and implement opportunities and solutions as Florida Students United.

Groups involved with Student Voices include: Boys & Girls Club Florida Alliance, Florida Association of Student Councils, Florida Key Club, Gang Alternatives Program, Health Improvement Project, Healthy Teens Coalition, MindFULL Me, One Love, Sandy Hook Promise, Students Working Against Tobacco, Tampa Teens, Teens Advocating Together, and the Children’s Trust of Miami.

We appreciate the support of the Florida Association of School Administrators (FASA) and the Florida Parent Teacher Association (PTA). Recordings from the Student Voices Educators Forum (May 29, 2020) and Families Forum (June 1, 2020) as well as other fora are linked below.
