Student Webinars

Taking Student Voice to a new level

What are our Student Webinars?

At VotesforSchools, we put Student Voice first. We're passionate about getting young people talking, discussing the big issues at play and leading the change that they want to see.

This year, our Youth Ambassadors will be planning and hosting webinars throughout the year on topical issues for students across the country. These sessions will be run for students, by students and the outcome will be passed on to schools, parents and organisations and used to influence change.
