From 2006-10, Adam supported the national nonprofit Youth On Board as they continued and expanded their efforts to promote systemic youth engagement in Boston Public Schools. He also rewrote two of their publications, 15 Points to Successfully Involving Youth in Decision-Making and Youth On Boards.

Adam partnered with Youth On Board (YOB) to provide resources and develop case studies focused on the Boston Student Voice Project. Working through the district Office of High School Reform, YOB facilitated the Boston Student Advisory Council for three years to that point. They also coordinated the district-wide Student Engagement Advisory Council (SEAC).

YOB assisted with the development of small learning communities in the former Hyde Park High School by facilitating a strategic student voice plan in the school. SoundOut supported these efforts in an ongoing basis with technical assistance and critical evaluations.

Adam also supported Youth On Board activities in several schools and district programs. They included:

  • Monument High School
  • Social Justice Academy
  • The Engineering School
  • Community Academy of Science and Health
  • Boston Student Advisory Council
  • Student Engagement Advisory Council
