Youth Speaks has a 15-year track record of working with hundreds of thousands of students in the Bay Area alone.
Each year, we offer classroom workshops and all-school assemblies to over 50 Bay Area Middle and High Schools interested in exposing their students to the power of spoken word and poetry.
Our School Visit Program consists of two services:
- Spoken Word Assembly
- Creative Writing Workshop
SPOKEN WORD ASSEMBLY
The 1-hour assemblies are showcase-style and feature some of the most talented spoken word artists in the Bay Area, ranging in age from 16 to 25. All assemblies are appropriate for middle and high schools and can be accompanied with 1-hour theme-based creative writing workshops facilitated by professional Youth Speaks poet mentors.
CREATIVE WRITING WORKSHOP
We offer a range of creative writing workshops that provide a glimpse into the Youth Speaks process. Through dialogue and guided practice, we encourage students to
