What: StraightTalk is a sensitivity workshop for parents, educators, police officers, and youth workers. YouthSpeak Founder, Una Wright, leads an inspiring presentation including her own experience as a parent. Youth speakers offer practical exchanges that are eye-opening, real and raw through their personal stories as they travelled the path from pain to wellness. The speakers share how their struggles influenced, not only themselves, but their friends and families.
Why: this is designed to bring new awareness, understanding and appreciation for the challenges faced by today’s youth and learn relevant insights, ideas, and tips about youth resiliency and taking steps towards building positive relationships with youth from a youth perspective.
