VOICES, COBRA, Young VOICES, and Young COBRA are academic and leadership development groups for middle and high schools students. We follow a well-established meeting structure, set of program tenets, and practices that empower students to take control of their academic futures, discover their paths, set goals, and accomplish them. These programs are the heart and soul of ICUSP.
