Countdown to Annual Conference

Rising Leader Initiative

Rising Leader Initiative




The Rising Leaders Initiative is a one-year advocacy training program for charter high school students who want to become active participants in education policy decisions in their local community and state and develop skills to guide their educational and professional pathways.




We will recruit a diverse group of charter high school students who want to advocate for better education policies in their communities and give back to the next generation of students.




Students will participate in monthly virtual workshops to deepen their knowledge on the functions of civic participation, education advocacy, coalition building and develop leadership and public speaking skills.




Students will create and lead an advocacy club in their school to advocate for their charter school and develop impactful policy initiatives to address an urgent public education issue affecting their school or community.




  • High school students enrolled at a U.S. charter school in the 2022-2023 academic year
  • Good academic standing
  • Demonstrated commitment to others through volunteering and service to their school/community.
  • An interest in advocacy, leadership, and government
