WHAT WE DO
Student Voice Initiative (SVI) is a federally-incorporated non-profit organization focused on working to strengthen student engagement in Canada. Countless hours of research and practice have told us that an engaged student is a successful student. We provide students, teachers and educational leaders across the country with the resources and guidance they need to improve meaningful student involvement.
Founded in 2011, Student Voice Initiative (SVI) works across Canada with school boards, advocacy associations and provincial governments to help improve student engagement. Student voices, opinions and perspectives enrich decision-making processes and contribute to a stronger education system. As a student-led non-profit, we aim to ensure these perspectives are brought to the board table, while advising policymakers and incubating the next generation of leaders. We have unified stakeholder interests and built system-wide recognition of the importance of student voice at various levels of government. We seek to mobilize students, policy-makers and educational leaders to actualize comprehensive student voice initiatives.
