UP for Learning

Provides training, resource development, and on-going support for a wide variety of initiatives that develop opportunities for young people to assume meaningful roles in shaping their learning and their lives.
We envision a time when all youth will take responsibility for their own learning by collaborating with adults in the educational system to reach their own goals.
It is our mission to increase youth engagement by developing youth-adult partnerships in learning to ensure that each and every young person has the skills, self-confidence, and opportunities to assume meaningful roles in shaping their learning and their lives.
