New Voices seeks to create student ambassadors for change by connecting them with individuals who are experiencing various forms of dependency including homelessness, lack of basic living necessities or addiction to name a few. Students literally put a face on significant community issues by working with individuals who are in challenged circumstances by collecting firsthand narratives from them. By working with their partners hand in hand over the course of a typical New Voices program (about 10 weeks), students develop a strong sense of empathy with those in dependent or marginalized circumstances. Past New Voices participants and partners discuss their experiences in the videos on this page.
