Building Student Agency

Elisa’s Blueprint sought to create a solid youth voice in Tucson by bringing student leaders from both high school and the university together to fight against educational inequities and injustices facing the public districts. She worked to create a youth center that was supported by college students and community members where young adults could learn about their rights and how to organize in order to build students’ agency and voice when policies that further marginalize youth by cutting educational resources are put forward.
