Tomorrow's Voices 2020-2021
Local juniors and seniors in high school within the Roaring Fork Valley can take this ACES course for college credit in partnership with the University of Colorado, Denver. Through the program, students explore the intersection of social justice and environmental issues while discovering the power of their own civic voices. It is an additional commitment from everyday school work and extracurricular activities; classes are held on Monday nights throughout the semester. The program provides an opportunity for high school students in the valley to come together and learn from each other. It is a rigorous, interactive, discussion-based class that asks students to examine their own beliefs and actions.
Additionally, local experts are brought in to discuss various positions on controversial subjects, allowing students to form their own opinions after listening to different perspectives. The program’s impact goes far beyond academic credit and grades, by cultivating a cohort of active citizens. For example, Roaring Fork High School in Carbondale is now completely powered by solar panels thanks to Tomorrow’s Voices’ students, who advocated for and worked with the school board to purchase and integrate them. In the 2019-2020 school year, Tomorrow’s Voices served 34 students.
