“The VOICE project is a student led initiative of the Gender Sexuality Alliance (GSA) student organization. The purpose of this project is to help all students find their voice through arts, literacy and comfort corners. Students will use project management to develop an event plan that will include an event showcase and monthly Lunch & Learn sessions that will include guest speakers who will share VOICE strategies for art, literacy, goal setting, entrepreneurship, anger management and more. Artifacts from these sessions will be featured in a VOICE showcase. Comfort corners will provide alternative class seating and SEL Maker Spaces in each classroom.”
