Mission Bringing a mix of play and researched interventions alive, Just Speak empowers young people with resiliency skills, building trauma-informed schools and healthier communities.
Just Speak is a trauma-centered advocacy that provides crisis support and resiliency programming for children and youth aged 3 to 17 years. Since 2003, Just Speak has held the survivor story as the connector for a network of trained advocates from a variety of disciplines. We believe that prevention, intervention, and awareness building based in play and creative expression leads to healthy socio-emotional skills, and ultimately, to a life of resiliency.
We believe that when youth find their own voice they can advocate for themselves and others.
We believe that youth are agents for positive change in their community.
We believe that every youth has a right to a safe space.
We believe that youth can reinvent themselves in the face of trauma in a way that both builds skills and celebrates life.
We believe that survivors are lighthouses whose stories shatter silence and serve as universal messages of strength.
We believe in a world where youth can still believe they are magic-makers and superheroes while reshaping who they will become.
