What is Wake Up!?
Wake UP! will coach and empower Charlotte students to become champions for educational equality by questioning, understanding, and articulating the educational issues in their community as well as navigating the pathways to obtaining a promising future of their choice. The students who participate will come away with the knowledge, resources, and relationships to have a voice that influences their peers and community.
Who will be a part of the Wake Up!?
Wake Up! seeks students in 8th -11th grades to represent their schools!
Why is there a need?
We believe that STUDENTS HAVE and SHOULD be able to offer a crucial perspective on the state of education in Charlotte-Mecklenburg and it is time for THEIR voices to be heard. Together, 200 student representatives will have the opportunity to discuss & analyze the state of education past and present in Charlotte and offer their own solutions to a 21st Century education that should better prepare more youth for the world.
