LAUNCH: BATON ROUGE YOUTH VOICE INITIATIVE

The Baton Rouge Youth Voice Initiative, a collaborative project of the Mayor’s Youth Advisory Council, Baton Rouge Alliance for Students and Safe, Hopeful, Healthy BR, launched in February. A key component of the Initiative, the Truth Booth, can be found popping up in locations across the parish. 

The Initiative seeks to identify student perspectives on areas of need in Baton Rouge, elevate student voice in K12 education policy, and develop a pipeline for student engagement at all levels of EBR government systems.

The interactive Truth Booth interactive experience allows Baton Rouge students to lend their voices, be heard, and share their perspectives on the improvements they would like to see in their schools and communities. 

The Truth Booth allows students to tell their stories and engage in meaningful dialogue with local decision-makers through a digital experience.
