From 2004 to 2008 I contracted with the HumanLinks Foundation, a small family foundation in north Seattle, to develop foundation goals, knowledge, and activities to support meaningful student involvement throughout education.
I assisted in the development and implementation of an activity-oriented approach towards meaningful student involvement. Activities included the development of a strategic plan, ongoing consultation, project development and management, and evaluation. Specific activities included supporting New Horizons for Learning’s student voice initiative, a Seattle Public Schools high school student project, and activities in local schools.
Resources developed include soundout.org, the Meaningful Student Involvement Guide to Inclusive School Change, Stories of Meaningful Student Involvement, Meaningful Student Involvement Research Guide, the Meaningful Student Involvement Resource Guide, and theSoundOut Student Voice Curriculum.
