Submit your nomination for PSU’s “A+ Youth Ally Award”
Do you know someone who is stepping up and making a difference for students?
We want to know! At this year’s Back to School Bash on September 28th, PSU will celebrate a local adult ally or advocate who has worked to improve the lives of PSU student leaders and young people in Providence generally.
We want your nominees! Who has been out there quietly working with and for young people for years? Who has really burst onto the youth organizing scene and helped young people win big campaign victories? OR: who is working behind the scenes to facilitate policy changes that improve students’ lives and make PSU’s work possible (or even unnecessary)? Let us know—submit your nomination here! ✊
Recruitment at schools is firing up!
It’s the best time of the year for PSU! All of September, we’ll be meeting hundreds—or thousands!—of Providence students and discussing their thoughts about their schools. Along the way, PSU members and staff organizers are signing up hundreds of young people to invite them to meetings, trainings, and citywide events.
