Our American Voice works with students to identify an issue at their school or in their community, but they don't stop there. Students then find and implement a solution.
At Healy Elementary in Chicago, students said they hope a "friendship bench" will make everyone feel they can get involved in recess activities.
Talking about Our American Voice, why a program like this is needed and its impact are Our American Voice project coordinatorJohn Fontanetta, teacher and Healy program advisor Stacy Coglianese and Eve Torres, a 5th Grader at Healy and Our American Voice member.
