2017-18 SpeakUp Project Grants Have Been Extended!

What are SpeakUp Projects?

SpeakUp Projects are part of the Ministry of Education’s Student Voice strategy. Student Voice aims to promote student engagement and success in Ontario’s schools by listening to and learning from students.

Student Voice supports students in sharing ideas and collaborating with others to shape their educational experience. SpeakUp Projects grants of up to $2,500 are available to help students lead projects that make a difference in their schools.

SpeakUp Projects also support the government’s Renewed Vision for Education, Achieving Excellence by encouraging students to focus their project ideas on the core goals for education:

  • Achieving excellence
  • Ensuring equity
  • Promoting well-being
  • Enhancing public confidence.

These four goals are interconnected – success in one contributes to success in the others. When students share their ideas, gain skills and collaborate with school, staff and community partners to implement SpeakUp Projects, the whole education system can benefit.
