The voices of young people matter
Through the intersection of arts education and youth development practices, civic engagement strategies, and high quality artistic presentation, Youth Speaks creates safe spaces that challenge young people to find, develop, publicly present, and apply their voices as creators of societal change.
Youth Speaks exists to shift the perceptions of youth by combating illiteracy, isolation, alienation, and silence, creating a global movement of brave new voices bringing the noise from the margins to the core.
Youth Speaks: National
Brave New Voices is a network of arts organizations and an international poetry festival for young writers and poets.
Our Emerging Arts Programs is a two-year Youth Speaks professional development program in the SF Bay Area.
