We believe it is possible to transform public schools from the inside out when the voices of youth, educators, and communities are at the center. Thank you for amplifying education with the nearly 500 middle and high school youth and educators who make up the Amped Learning Network. Together, we are building an innovative and dynamic community of lifelong learners and civic leaders.
An amped education aligns hearts, heads, and hands, restoring well-being and collective joy to the learning process. Because young people are more than test scores, an amped education equips students with critical literacy skills to read the word and the world, turning up the volume so that youth voices can be heard. Finally, an amped education grows from the belief that young people are not problems to be solved; rather, they are critical problem solvers. Our approach invites young people to analyze and take action on the social issues that affect their lives and worlds.
These approaches matter, a fact made visible in the 29% increase in graduation rates for youth in Amped classrooms compared to their peers. Through your support, we are able to amplify well-being, critical literacy, and community-minded problem solving every day in East Baton Rouge Public Schools. Thank you for your contribution to this essential work!
STUDENTS KNOW WHAT PROBLEMS AFFECT THEM EVERY DAY. WHEN YOU GIVE THEM THE TOOLS, THEY CAN BUILD.

Knowing that I have that support from teachers makes me not want to give up. I have a great appreciation for the way they teach us with great dedication and infinite patience.

BEFORE I GOT IN AMPED I WOULD HAVE NEVER SEEN MYSELF DOING SOMETHING LIKE THIS. I CAN HONESTLY SAY IT HAS BUILT MY CONFIDENCE TO ANOTHER LEVEL. I FEEL LIKE I CAN TAKE ON ANY CHALLENGE THAT'S GIVEN MY WAY.
