Future Voter Project

FVP
When you read about the history of Northern Light, one thing clearly stands out above the rest: this community develops students who are engaged and empowered – not just as students, but as citizens. 
 
With the November election coming up, we have a fantastic opportunity to stress some of the concepts, themes, and skills associated with democratic participation, while highlighting the voices of our fantastic students about issues and questions that pique their interest. 
 
Inspired by Teaching Tolerance's Future Voter Project, along with other schools around the country, we present our NLS “Future Voters Project,” a community-wide effort to address the question, “Why Vote?”, through creative projects, posters, activities, classroom conversations, and more. 
 
Joining us in this endeavor are our friends at The People’s Conservatory and Get Empowered, along with our very own FTC.
 
Check out our digital poster – we’d love for students to work on a project of their choosing, that we’ll be able share during a special Morning Circle: NLS Future Voters edition, on Friday, October 30th. Please submit projects no later than Friday, October 23rd. We're encouraging all students, parents, supporters, and friends to engage in this project to help empower our students to become informed voters of the future.
