"Being apart of this program would give other black men the opportunity to boost confidence in
their voice, their opinions and their sense of self. I think it would make an astronomical difference."

Speakers U is a 10 week program designed to help 15 young black men ages 13-29 living in Ward 3 Etobicoke-Lakeshore learn the art of oration. Participants will use the art forms of creative writing, spoken word, poetry and monologues to create their own allegorical story.
Workshops will have a personal direct impact on the black experience and will address racial profiling by police. Through weekly communication and public speaking training, personal development workshops, and mentorship from alumni of the program, participants will speak before a live audience at our finale showcase event.
