The Philadelphia Student Union is dedicated to empowering youth to work toward a more just society while preparing them for community leadership. We believe that strong public schools are crucial to creating a more just society. True educational reform cannot be achieved without the active participation and leadership of students.
We believe that every young person has the right to a high quality education. We believe that young people should have a voice in the decisions that affect their lives. We believe that young people have the right and the capacity to lead public schools forward. We are training a new generation of leadership who understands the root causes of social problems and is highly skilled at building unity among diverse groups of people.
