Book a Youth Speaks Writing & Performance Workshop or Series
Thank you for your interest in securing an online Youth Speaks Writing & Performance Workshop or Series at your school, organization, or community site!

Since 1996, Youth Speaks has helped youth find, develop, present, and apply their voice, identity, power, and imagination towards social transformation. While Youth Speaks is often known for our big events, the most important work often happens behind the scenes within the intimate space of our Writing & Performance Workshops. Due to the ongoing pandemic, our workshops have moved online, which allows for our poet mentors to gather with you and your participants across the virtual table and hold space in new and exciting ways.

STANDARD WORKSHOP OR SERIES: Our standard workshops, facilitated by a Youth Speaks poet mentor, each make space for participants to have fun practicing writing, sharing, and discussing topics related to identity formation and how to navigate the world around them. Our 4-6 session residencies include a suite of new and classic workshops designed to help activate and develop youth voice in a way that is urgent and responsive to the moment.
