Jack Talks Speaker Application
Thank you for your interest in joining the Jack Talks Program!

The deadline for the Summer 2017 training has passed. The next scheduled cohort of training will be for Summer 2018.

However, we accept applications throughout the year and occasionally train speakers outside of standard training periods if they come from an under-represented area or an area for which we are experiencing high demand. If you'd like to be considered before Summer 2018, please submit an application AND email talks@jack.org to see if there is a current need in your area.

All applications are reviewed prior to Summer training (June-August).
