    Speak Up




    “For it isn’t enough to talk about peace. One must believe in it. And it isn’t enough to believe in it. One must work at it.”  - Eleanor Roosevelt

    The purpose of the Speak Up Speak Out Youth Forum Series (Formerly known as Young Voices Matter) is to provide students the opportunity to safely engage in conversations with their peers and adults on a variety of topics that resonate with them. 

    In addition, we aim to connect students with community leaders and professionals who can share their experiences, knowledge, and areas of expertise with the students and hopefully provide them with the guidance and support they need. It has become evident, from discussions with students and a review of social media postings, that our students have questions and want responsible engagement to help them sort through the issues they face. 

    The Speak Up Speak Out Youth Forum is designed to address student concerns in a platform that is student-driven and accessible to all students. Currently, all forum activities are being provided through Microsoft Teams.
