Student Voice & Leadership programs transform DPS students and school cultures when students discover their core strengths and apply them in real world experiences.

"Make Leadership Your Sport." ~ Solicia Lopez About SVL
DPS Student Brayan Montes

"SBOE has allowed me to develop my skills as a member of the community by showing me the power of using student voice as a tool to make the lives and learning of students better. I can truly say that without the student board of education I would not be the leader and student that I am today."
