Film Series Webinar—Emerging Voices from the Pandemic: Students Speak Out

This past spring, the National Urban League embarked on a journey to learn from young people about their experiences with remote learning. The result is a provocative 13-part film series. Young people share the challenges of school and home life, all the while navigating a COVID-19 nightmare. Their worlds have changed. They tell their stories in their voices. They also tell us what adults can do better! The films are packed with actionable recommendations for policymakers, administrators, youth development specialists, and adults who interact with young people.

Join the conversation on Thursday, October 28, 2021 at 2:00pm EDT for a behind-the-scenes talk with the students featured in the film series. Learn more about their experience and how our communities can better advocate for students affected by the pandemic.

📢 Have You Heard?


The C/W CS TAC provides technical assistance to school districts and their cross-sector partners integrating a Community Schools approach into a Multi-Tiered System of Support (MTSS) framework. This approach promotes alignment and integration of evidence-based practices for academic, social/emotional, behavioral, and health needs.

We offer support in building upon the existing strengths of school districts to remove barriers to learning and support the whole child, family, and community through technical assistance that includes:
  • Regional Events
  • Webinars
  • Site Visits
  • Phone Consultation
  • Communities of Practice
For more information, email us at



Using schools as hubs, community schools bring educators, families, and community partners together to offer a wide range of opportunities, supports, and services to students, as well as their families and communities.

Community schools:
  • Provide expanded learning opportunities that are motivating and engaging during the school day, after school, and in the summer
  • Offer integrated health and social supports and services
  • Engage families and communities as assets in the lives of their children
