Mission: The foundation of S.P.E.A.K. focuses on providing educational information and activities that encourage youth to become responsible, productive citizens, empowering them with the courage to speak out on issues that affect their lives and the communities where they live. With each letter of the word S.P.E.A.K, our efforts will encourage children to stay in school and understand that education is essential for their future. In order to achieve this, we must first help them to think positively and provide them the skills and guidance to achieve a successful life. We believe that Staying Positive Equals Amazing Kids.
Results: We spent a lot of time this year building our "Golden Ticket Intensive program" if you know of a business that would like to be part of this great program please let us know. Contact us for further information.
Target demographics: S.P.E.A.K. has also developed relationships with students in area colleges and universities in the areas of Performing Arts, Business, Communication, as well as other academic clubs. These relationships provide positive role models for our inner city youth, while encouraging the college students to join the organization’s mission and help young adults to strive for positive futures. University partnerships will not only benefit S.P.E.A.K’s development but will provide college students with experience that will contribute to their professional career development, such as Performing Arts students contributing to the organization’s presentations that actively involve K-12 students, teachers, and administrators.
