The Bell

The Bell amplifies the voices of New York City students and empowers them to lead the fight for their futures.

We have two student-led programs:

  • The Miseducation podcast passes high school student interns the microphone to tell journalistic narratives from inside the school system, raising broader public awareness of inequities that often go unseen. Episodes feature the voices of students, whom we consider to be the experts.
  • Teens Take Charge unites a diverse group of high school students from across New York City to lead the fight for educational equity. Through community organizing and targeted advocacy campaigns, Teens Take Charge shifts power in education decision-making to students.
