9 months ago

Today, Youth Speaks, a world leader in youth development and spoken word performance, kicks off the beginning of the "Brave New Schools" competition—a national contest boasting spoken word, hip-hop and poetry. In collaboration with XQ Institute, the competition is purposed to use the power from the art of spoken word to help spark the conversation about how to transform the face of high school and public education. The partnership between the two organizations will launch a series of 20 town halls where young people can broadcast their poems, stories and dreams to reimagine the experiences endured in public high school.
