Founded in San Francisco in 1996, Youth Speaks is at the forefront of a national Spoken Word performance, education, and youth development movement. In over 40 cities, more than 250,000 young writers 13 to 24 years old are speaking their own messages through this powerful medium to millions of their urban and suburban peers. Politically aware, critically engaged, and unafraid to speak, young people are picking up the pen and grabbing hold of the microphone, moving themselves into positions of power claiming voice when theyve been voiceless, and access where theyve been sidelined.
