Calling rising high school juniors and seniors in TEXAS; MISSOURI; and FLORIDA! Our Turn is proud to announce that we are now accepting applications for our Summer Cadre Organizing Cohort.


Our Turn mobilizes, amplifies, and elevates the voices of young people in the fight for educational equity. The resounding demand by students of color, first generation students, and allies to transform the K-12 system is validated by our shared experiences overcoming the opportunity gap. Through organizing campaigns, leadership development, and national storytelling, young people channel their power to spark a new movement for justice that fulfills our nation's promise of a high quality education for all.


The Our Turn Summer Cohort develops students into grassroots organizers who fight for educational justice in their communities– including protecting truth in classrooms. Students have been left out of conversations around what they are being taught in schools. We know that young people, as the people receiving the curriculum and conversations, have the best view of what feels nourishing and formative. As those closest to the problem, they must be closest to the solution.


During our six-week program, students will be trained on grassroots organizing and receive coaching on becoming an agent of change in their communities. Cadre program time commitment is approximately 5 hours a week. Participants will receive a $500 stipend for their full participation in the cohort.


Applications due Monday, July 1st @ 11:59pm.
