Join the National Initiative Today
As champions of student leadership, NASSP continues to seek ways to amplify student voice and empower young leaders to effect real change in their communities. That’s why we’re proud to partner with No Kid Hungry, a national campaign run by Share Our Strength.
In collaboration with Share Our Strength and the Student Leadership Advisory Committee, NASSP will serve as a platform for our nation’s schools to address the pressing issue of childhood hunger through meaningful opportunities for students and school leaders to engage in advocacy and service.
Follow this space for additional updates about our partnership with No Kid Hungry, resources, and ways you can get involved.
