What is it?
- Like Student Council or Student Leadership but not really
- “Empowerment” says it all
- Students taking ownership of projects and initiatives to improve the culture, structure, organization, and community-building at BCP
- Not “top-down” or “bottom–up” but a collaboration between students and adults to reach common goals or requirements.

- We prioritize projects and build partnerships to work on them.
