Mission Statement

SPEAK Mentorship develops the social and cultural capital of youth to become leaders in the workforce.

Description

Started in 2015, SPEAK started with the vision of a more diverse future workforce with more women of color of all backgrounds in positions of power across a variety of careers. SPEAK ensures girls get a fair chance of pursuing college and careers of their choice.

Through SPEAK programs, girls:

  • gain knowledge and experience with tech platforms and tools

  • develop a peer community and safe space within schools through SPEAK Chapter Clubs, making new friends, finding a sense of belonging, and increasing confidence and self-esteem

  • meet with multiple culturally responsive mentors to learn about their own cultures and other cultures, increasing their self-awareness, awareness of others, and developing their identity

  • learn new career specific skills, about career ecosystems, and pursue civic engagement opportunities through mentors

  • increase academic and social emotional skills, developing a greater sense of school engagement as mentoring sessions often tie into school activities

We are committed to empowering the next generation of diverse workforce leaders, and thank you in advance for supporting our work and mission.
