Providence Student Union

The Providence Student Union seeks to build student power to ensure that young people have a fair say in improving their education.

In the spring of 2010, students from Providence’s Hope High School joined together to fight to protect their school’s popular block schedule from being dismantled. They began a series of campaigns to improve their school and the quality of their education. After achieving a number of school-based victories, the group decided that their youth-led advocacy model would be valuable to students in other high schools in the city, and so PSU began organizing chapters across the district. There are now have PSU chapters in five schools across Providence, each working together to increase the collective power of students throughout the city.
