Brave New Voices

Youth Speaks is joining with XQ: The Super School Project to host an open online competition from May 8 through June 18 asking poets, rappers, and storytellers ages 13 -24 tocreate a three-minute video sharing their vision for a Brave New School.  If you have questions please email bravenewschools@youthspeaks.org.
