Vote for City Year’s two panel ideas for SXSW EDU!

We hope you’ll vote for two City Year sessions to appear at SXSW EDU in March 2024, a leading education conference that brings together practitioners, innovators and inspiring speakers who are working to re-envision what schools can become.

SXSW EDU crowdsources to help select its programing each year, so your vote between August 8-20, 2023, helps to increase the likelihood that one or both of our panels are selected through the conference’s Panel Picker process!

Reimagining educational innovation

Tiger Rahman, City Year’s senior director of community-based action research, will explore how our organization is reimagining program design and product management to help advance educational equity for students and practitioners.

Vote for “Reimagining educational innovation in research and design,” and check out a short video by Tiger about his proposal.

Centering student voice to craft afterschool programs

afterschool programs. Anchored in research, our framework incorporates student voice, elements of design thinking and continuous improvement practices.

Vote for “For us, by us: Crafting the student experience,” and catch a brief video by LaTasha about the session.
