SOUL: Students Organizing for Unity and Liberation!


Through the SOUL Academy, youth learn about the history of the labor movement, social justice unionism, and ways to leverage interdisciplinary knowledge. Youth engage in activism, organizing, and leadership, so as to positively impact schools and society.


The SOUL Academy is held over Zoom due the public health crisis.

Contact us to enroll youth or learn more.


NBCSOS collaborates with BREATHE! - a community collaborative that organizes against structural racism.


BREATHE! seeks to strategically create change in the policy and practice in our community that has upheld institutional racism, state violence, and all around injustice and to bring awareness and education to local residents and organizations on the issues that disproportionately impact communities of color and their basic human rights.


Contact us for more information or to participate. 


Individuals: NBCSOS unites families, youth, educators, and community leaders on various projects and campaigns to strengthen our schools and our community. 


Organizations: NBCSOS works with various local and national organizations, such as USOS, to advance our mission. We believe that public and social policy is educational policy. We are therefore committed to working with and supporting other organizations and projects that positively impact the lives of families in our community.
