wkcdWhat Kids Can Do (WKCD) is a national nonprofit founded in January 2001 to promote perceptions of young people as valued resources, not problems, and to advocate for learning that engages students as knowledge creators and not simply test takers. In addition, WKCD brings youth voices to policy debates about school, society, and world affairs.

WKCD also offers a number of short publications  that support youth voice and activism, student engagement in school reform, and academic success for students marginalized by class, race, and language.
