The Freechild Institute defines Youth Voice as the active, distinct, and concentrated ways young people represent themselves throughout society.
Freechild has been promoting Youth Voice in nonprofit organizations, schools, foundations and government agencies since it was founded in 2001. Working with partners across the country, we has learned about Youth Voice from the 100,000 young people and adult allies in our workshops, retreats and critical conversations.
Use Freechild Institute Youth Voice Toolkit to find some of the tools, examples and resources we have created for young people to change the world in positive, powerful ways!
