Student Voice Committees (SVCs) are school-based student leadership teams designed to forge student-adult partnerships in school improvement.
SVCs seek to partner directly with administration on persistent problems the school is actively seeking to address. As a key partner in school improvement, SVCs should be a part of school quality assessment, school visioning and planning, and the decision making process.
The SVC works to elevate youth perspective and expertise in understanding the problems schools face, to strengthen the decisions schools and teachers make, and to encourage the development of youth leadership skills.
