The International Congress of Youth Voices is presented by The Hawkins Project and made possible with support from people and organizations in the United States and internationally, including dozens of youth-serving organizations that nominate student delegates.

Thank you to our donors, which include Writers House, the Panta Rhea Foundation, Steven Malk & Alexandra Sartor, and Gregory & Amanda Silverman.
