Our American Voice participants from Heritage Middle School School in Berwyn, IL teach CBS 2 Chicago Reporter Vince Gerasole about civic engagement and their OAV project to bring trash cans to their community.
You can also see Vince’s interview with Emerson Elementary students about the changes they helped to bring about in their school lunch program here. To learn about the Buddy Bench that Irving Elementary OAVers built, watch this video.
Vince also interviewed OAVers from Hiawatha about their efforts to change their school mascot name, as well as Freedom Middle School OAV, who are working with local as well as state and Federal officials to get an overpass over railroad tracks near their school. Listen in here.
