The Voices of Wisconsin Students Project wants to hear from Wisconsin students about learning, coping and building resilience during COVID-19.

How is school and learning going for you during COVID-19, for example? What are current sources of stress or anxiety and what challenges are you experiencing, as another?

Wisconsin Institute for Public Policy and Service Research Partners will conduct a series of 20 Zoom small group discussions with Wisconsin middle and high school students between Jan. 26 and Feb. 12. Students will be provided with a $10 gift card.

WIPPS will gather information about how students are coping during COVID-19; identify challenges, as well as examples of success and resilience; and obtain feedback about students’ learning experiences. This project will help DHS, school leaders and community organizations improve and implement services, programs and supports for Wisconsin youths.
