Through all of our work we uplift the voices of youth

Voice2Youth™ is our flagship program. It encompasses a poetry and literacy-focused curriculum that has produced an award-winning after-school program, an annual region-wide youth poetry slam, youth poetry publications, and spoken word workshops for students from our local and global community. Its curriculum was developed and proven over ten-plus years through the collaboration and collective knowledge of classroom teachers and teaching artists.
