Every day, 6 Michigan students are expelled from school and many more are suspended or absent for a variety of reasons. Every empty chair in school represents a complex story and missed opportunity to learn and grow.
We are proud to partner with art students to elevate real-life stories of empty chairs in school.
Thanks to our Empty Chair volunteers: Adrian Deva, Joye Ofei, Lynne Settles, Nick Azarro and Nick Tobier.
Since 1975, Student Advocacy Center has worked to fill those empty chairs. We provide advocacy, support, mentoring for out-of-school youth or those missing a lot of school, particularly for disciplinary reasons. We know a better way is possible and work to elevate the voice of students, collaborate with schools and develop more effective ways to address challenging behavior.
