The Active Advocacy Coalition, formed through St. Louis Graduates and The Scholarship Foundation of St. Louis in 2015, with support of a three-year grant from the Trellis Foundation, turns three this year.
To commemorate the milestone, the Coalition commissioned a case study to document how it came about and the lessons learned along the way. Among the highlights: Putting students in the forefront of advocating for policies that affect them. Doing the research and collecting the data to inform strategy. Change takes time.
The main takeaway: Trust young people to lead.
