The Youth Speaks Friendraiser 2017
A fundraising campaign for Youth Speaks.
About This Campaign
The night begins at 5:30 p.m. with happy hour. Then at 7 p.m., over a delicious family-style dinner prepared by Limón, you’ll get the insider’s look into our dreams and visions for the future. Most importantly, you’ll get the signature Youth Speaks experience that you’ve come to cherish: amazing stories, the inspiring voices of young people, and hip hop.
Youth Speaks is proud to turn 20. We’ve witnessed hundreds of thousands of young people, picking up pens, filling blank pages, and grabbing the mic to declare themselves present. Yet for all the noise we’ve made, we’re just getting started.

Campaign to Support Youth Speaks
Founded in 1996 in San Francisco, Youth Speaks has long championed a local, national, and increasingly global movement of young people picking up pens and stepping proudly onto stages, declaring themselves present. We believe that literacy is a need, not a want. One of the world’s leading presenters of Spoken Word performance, education, and youth development programs, Youth Speaks produces local and national youth poetry slams, festivals, and reading series, alongside a comprehensive slate of arts-in-education programs during the school day, in the after-school hours and on weekends. In addition, we create internationally-recognized theater and digital programming, and have helped launch a national network of over 70 programs who believe in the power of young people.
