Amplify Youth Voices 📣

Projects ✅

We create space for all teammates to show up authentically.

We prioritize youth voice and decision making in educational spaces. Advocating and enacting change by, with, and for youth.

We work on projects in the Reinvention Lab and across Teach For America.


Even in innovative learning spaces true co-creation is hard to achieve. It started with a group of young people in Denver, CO, called Future 10X. With the drastic changes caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, young people advocated and the movement evolved into the Enduring Ideas Fellowship with the Reinvention Lab. Since then we have worked to establish the Reinventors.

Our Goal:

to create a space where youth feel seen, heard, and supported as they co-create with adults. Our youth perspective helps make decisions that better respond to the needs of young people in schools.
