For 16 years, we have helped young people SAY what’s in their hearts, SAY what’s on their minds, SAY what they want to SAY, SAY the stories they want to tell, SAY the things they want the world to know about them, and SAY the things they want the world to hear.

With your support, we will continue to underwrite over $1,000,000 in programmatic costs each year, to ensure that these inspiring and brave young people SAY the things that shouldn’t go unsaid.
