Check out this great event from our youth mentoring partner SPEAK mentorship!
SPEAK mentorship is a non-profit that focuses on immigrants and children of immigrants to help them build a peer network within their school and to connect them via an e-platform with mentors outside of their network. This provides students with the visible role models that may not be easily available to them.
SPEAK Summit is an opportunity for our mentees (high school students) to network with their mentors and other positive influences to share ideas, skills, and networks that will empower communities around America.
Our SPEAK Summit 2019 has an amazing lineup of speakers and panelists. We will also feature student success stories throughout the event.
