Want to bring Give Youth a Voice to your school, community or youth group?

Give Youth a voice is a speaker type tour designed with school students and youth in mind. We have transformed the information that we collected from our focus groups of adolescents and combined it with the knowledge of our professional youth experts to create an interactive and educational speaking event for youth, parents or companies that work with youth. 

WHY??

When you think about middle/junior high school, what is the first thing that pops in your head?

For most it was the worst time of their school life and/or the most challenging. Many people remember middle/junior high school this way due to an excessive amount of bullying or mean kids, hormonal changes, growing pains, peer pressure, trying to understand or build their social identity, the pressure of transitioning from elementary or into high school and so much more. Kids can be perceived as mean at this time due to all the hormones rushing through their bodies and their brains not knowing how to perceive these changes so they lash out on whomever might be standing in their wake. With all these changes, hormones and pressure wrapped together it can create the perfect storm with no outlet.
