UP for Learning helps educational institutions across the country fully engage youth in their own learning and in reimagining and transforming education. We utilize research-based models that reshape the student-teacher relationship to one of shared ownership and shared responsibility. UP offers facilitation, strategies, tools, and ongoing coaching to ensure that learning is engaging for everyone and youth are fully empowered.

Empowering youth and adults to reimagine and transform education together. Our fundamental value is to seek equity and justice.
Now into our second decade, UP for Learning grew from a demonstration project of the importance of youth voice in school reform into what it is today.
Just as student-centered learning requires a partnership between youth and adults, building public understanding for change must be built upon this same fundamental partnership between the two largest stakeholder groups in education.
