Education equity is the belief that everyone deserves a quality education, regardless of their race, gender, identity, socioeconomic status, or any other trait.

Education in Action logo
Teams working on Education in Action engage K-12 youth and educators (in school and afterschool programs) to increase educational equity in their school or community. Through the Investigation phase of service-learning, students discover needs and define the actions that will make significant change. From education, awareness, policy review and change, environmental and cultural supports and more, they have a voice in their educational experience and generating change in their schools and communities.
The application period for the 2023-24 school year is now closed. Please check back in spring 2024 for next year’s programming.

“This program has provided a platform for young people like me to voice our ideas, take action on issues that matter to us, and make a positive impact in our communities. The opportunity to collaborate, learn from each other, and build networks of support has been a source of encouragement and motivation throughout the journey.”
