EQUITY IS A NECESSITY.

All students benefit from an equitable education system; however, the existing system disadvantages Black and Hispanic youth — especially males. Milwaukee’s young People of Color need more support. We see it in the numbers.

Education equity is at the heart of Youth Forward MKE and we think students hold the key to creating systems change.

What do you think can change in school to improve your success trajectory?

Attend our November 18th launch to hear what students think!

Get ready for a MOVEMENT.

Starting next Monday, November 2nd, Milwaukee Succeeds will be counting down to a live Facebook launch of our new initiative: Youth Forward MKE. As we continue to take a systems approach to education equity, Milwaukee Succeeds firmly believes that students need to be at the center of change. Youth Forward MKE is our official call for community action: student voice must come first.
