We are excited to invite you to our SpeakUp! Event on Tuesday, February 7th at 6:30pm.
Please pre-register HERE.

CLICK HERE for the selected topics for the event.
SpeakUp! is a youth-driven, experiential program that brings youth, school adults, and parenting adults together for authentic conversations on the topics our students want to discuss. The number one protective factor in a young person’s life is a positive relationship with a trusted adult. SpeakUp! is committed to building supportive relationships between students and adults. SpeakUp!’s 2020-2021 data showed 96% of participants plan to use what they learned at SpeakUp! to build stronger relationships.
Impacts for Parenting Adults who attend SpeakUp! include:
Gaining insight and an appreciation for youth perspectives and challenges
Learning from the experiences of other parenting adults
Practicing skills to help listen to and support youth
See schools as partners in helping youth thrive
SpeakUp! is an opportunity for:
Students to become more self-aware, empathetic, and comfortable speaking up and to strengthen relationships with peers and adults
School Adults to further build trusting relationships with youth and parenting adults
Our community to collectively create a culture of having courageous conversations and to build supportive relationships
We encourage you to make SpeakUp! a priority. If you have previously attended, come again. The conversation is always unique, and the results show the greatest impact for repeat participants!
Finally, thank you to our Student Leadership Team, Moderators, and School Facilitators, who have taken the lead to make this event possible! We are proud to be a SpeakUp! school and hope you can join us for this unique and insightful experience.
