About the Bigger Picture School Visit Program
The Bigger Picture Campaign is a collaboration between Youth Speaks inc, and The University of California, San Francisco’s Center for Vulnerable Populations designed to combat the rising epidemic of Type-2 Diabetes by empowering youth to change the conversation about the disease, and work to change the social and environmental factors that have led to its spread.

Bigger Picture performance assemblies run from 45 to 60 minutes long and feature some of the most talented spoken word artists in the Bay Area as well a dynamic Power Point Presentation that includes showcasing the PSAs.  All assemblies are appropriate for middle and high schools, and are combined with a classroom writing workshop preferably after the School Visit, for a select group of engaged attendees.

Each School Visit consists of two components:

  • Bigger Picture Spoken Word Assembly, 1 hour
  • Workshop related to topic of Community Health & Type 2 Diabetes, 1 hour
    The School Visit involves a dynamic PowerPoint presentation, some music, videos and live performances. The room must be dark enough to see the videos and the PowerPoint.
  • Please identify two preferred dates for your School Visit. We will select one based on our availability, or contact you to reschedule a day that works for both of us.
