Leaders of Youth Voice, a grassroots organizing effort designed to give youth a greater voice in the community and public policy, met with Robert Bobb, Emergency Financial Manager of Detroit Public Schools, Monday night to discuss important school issues. Bobb spent 90 minutes with the group of twenty youth and others involved with the organizing project. He agreed to meet periodically with Youth Voice and work with the group around issues of youth violence prevention, attendance and discipline policies, and youth leadership development. “I believe Youth Voice can be the platform to help mobilize students across the city,” Bobb said at the meeting.
