We hope to create a culture of communication in our homes and schools where it’s ok to talk about difficult topics.

SpeakUp! works in deep partnership with schools to create communities where teens are empowered to talk about difficult topics and reach out for support. Our youth-driven, experiential program begins with the school creating a Student Leadership Team of teens with diverse interests.  SpeakUp! meets with these students to learn what topics are most critical in their lives.  We help them plan their SpeakUp! event, where youth, educators and parents engage in honest conversation about these topics.

Our participant surveys of over 4,000 youth, parents and educators show that as a result of SpeakUp!:

• 96% of participants feel less alone,
• 93% are more willing to ask for help, and
• 91% have new strategies to manage challenges in their lives.

Register for a SpeakUp! Event at your school or in your area!
