What We Do
Pittsfield Listens encourages the power of youth, parent, family, and community voice on issues and policies that directly affect their education and their life, with a specific focus on engaging those who have historically been underrepresented. We support emerging youth and adults leaders through participatory leadership development, education, and training, so that youth succeed in the Pittsfield schools and beyond.
