Student Leadership Council
The student leadership Council is a group of student leaders from neighborhood schools' student voice committees in Brighton Park and surrounding neighborhoods who are in 6th, 7th, and 8th grade. Student leaders are trained in violence prevention, educational justice, immigrant rights, and organizing. They meet weekly to help organize our annual BPNC youth summit and to effect change in their community through awareness and intervention.
BPNC Has Student Voice Committees at Brighton Park Elementary School, Burroughs Elementary School, Davis Elementary School, Evergreen Academy Middle School, Gunsaulus Scholastic Academy, and Shields Middle School.

Our Campaigns

We believe in building power and uplifting the voices of youth, undocumented folks, people of color, and other marginalized identities without decision-making ability. Our ongoing campaigns aim to address the inequities faced by our community, including Treatment Not Trauma, Free the Funds, ICIRR, City Budget, and Cancel Shotspotter.
