Become a Student Leader!

This year, NV SAN will be hybrid with the group meeting 2 times a month on Wednesdays starting in January - June 2023 (excluding mid-winter and spring breaks).

This is a great leadership opportunity for students to positively impact and inform the work of New Visions on a school and systemic level. Students will work collaboratively with their peers and NV staff members to develop resources and tools that can be used to enhance school communities.  This year, the program will follow a hybrid model with both in-person and virtual meetings.

The NV SAN deadline for SY22-23 has passed. Check back in Fall 2023 for program updates. If you have immediate questions about the  NV SAN application and selection process, please contact Jackie McKinney at


The New Visions Student Advisory Network is an opportunity to meet other students and develop leadership skills. NV SAN members will collaborate in small groups of students and NV Staff members to complete a project that will positively impact schools and/or the New Visions office. We are looking for students who are committed, responsible and passionate about creating change.

Expectations as a Member:

"Being a part of NVSAN has been one of the most fulfilling experiences of my life, and I am so glad I was able to be a part of it at this age. Discussing all of the prominent issues going on within our education system as a result of the huge division between decision makers and the students is something that has really ignited a passion within me and I want to act as best as I can to empower other students to have a chance to have a seat at the table. "

- NV SAN Member, 11th grade
