Mission, Vision, Values

Our Mission

The Student Advocacy Center of Michigan works collaboratively with underserved students, and their families, to stay in school, realize their rights to a quality public education, grow and experience success.

Our Vision

Every student in school, supported and engaged.

Our Values

A robust public education is a human right and essential to a thriving democracy.

The student’s voice is essential in all endeavors.

We work collaboratively with the student, family, school and community to best meet the needs of each student.

We work to build the power and resources of the families we work with and focus on supporting self-advocacy whenever possible.

Using what we learn from each case, we work together with families and students to affect system-level changes.

We respect your rights. Read our Recipient Rights in EnglishSpanish and  Arabic.

Education: A Right Worth Investing In

We rely on your help to provide students with the support they need to stay in school, find hope and grow. Invest in the lives of youth today — every dollar you invest in producing a high school graduate has a return of $1.45 - $3.55.
