Welcome

The Speak Life Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that facilitates dialogue between youth and the surrounding community, exposing them to positive culture along with educational and career opportunities. It is our hope that our program will then inspire the participants to become active and productive citizens. The Speak Life Foundation has partnered with other non-profit organizations, high schools, middle schools, and elementary schools to provide programming for over 15,000 students since our inception in 2008.

The program not only exposes students to a new way of thinking, but fosters an environment where education is valued while self-love, mutual respect, and an attitude of appreciation form the foundation for their development. In addition to this, Speak Life provides students with the life skills to enhance academic performance, decrease behavior infractions and the tools to obtain their career aspirations and goals while helping them to build a foundation of responsibility, accountability, maturity, self-reliance and overall personal achievement. Our organization focuses on encouraging and supporting our students efforts in ensuring that they are prepared for post-secondary options and life.

We believe that words have power, and that we all have the choice to encourage and inspire someone today! Thank you for choosing to join us in our effort to “Speak Life” to others.

The Speak Life Program

Life Skills

Our life skills module helps our students with the basics that they will need for the future. Highlights of the program include etiquette (business, speech, and dining), financial literacy, setting goals, time management & study skills, as well as exploring options after high school. We want to make sure that our students are equipped to not only survive, but to thrive once they graduate.

Self Development

Our goal is to make sure that our students value and love themselves. We understand that it is impossible for students to value or respect others, their education, or their futures if they can't value and respect who they are. Our Self-Development module examines the key items that influence how our students feel about themselves. It provides them with the tools to combat those things that hinder them from knowing that they are awesome, while reinforcing their inner strength to overcome anything that tells them otherwise.

Wellness

Helping our kids to live a healthy and fulfilled life is paramount for us. Our students often need help navigating healthy food options, how to seek help if they are having issues that they don't know how to handle, and the dangers of a risky lifestyle. Our Health and Wellness modules provide information and resources to assist our students with their overall well being so that they can make informed and health conscious decisions about their lives.

Workforce Development Initiative

At the Speak Life Foundation, we often see a disconnect between what our students want to do and the steps they need to take to get there. We created the Workforce Development modules to help our students understand the requirements and expectations for their future employment. We teach them the in's and out's of what it takes for them to be successful in whatever career path they choose.

Character Education

Having and exhibiting positive character traits is important. Having integrity, having a strong work ethic, being considerate of others, and treating people the way that you would like to be treated are just a few of topics that we cover in our Character Education modules. These are life long lessons that if they are not taught early on, can have a lasting impact on our students future trajectory.

College and Exposure Tours

Have you ever wondered where you would be if you'd never left your neighborhood that you grew up in, the city that you call home, or the state that it resides in? Yes, that is the reality for a lot of the kids that we serve. We believe that 'seeing is believing' and have seen the positive impact that exposing our students to different experiences has done for them. It is life changing and inspiring.
