Youth Speak Out International is a 501C3 organization that promotes media literacy as a key means of countering media stereotyping. This approach encourages openness with objectivity, fosters tolerance, understanding and respect in today’s society. We have effectively educated more than 8,213 multi-cultural students in South Florida, Belize, Jamaica and Costa Rica. Our innovative hands- on curriculum delivers creative instruction that fosters interpersonal communication, critical thinking, self-exploration, public speaking, media production, life skills and job readiness. Our program’s unique and creative approach in combining media education with media creation gives students the opportunity to create positive change in their local and global communities.
Our Mission is to empower youth within culturally diverse communities to express their thoughts while creating independence through equality in order to create positive global change.
Our vision is to help students become aware of the choices they can make in self-exploration by using their own interpretation and evaluation of the world around them.
