We Act. Present. Perform. (We.APP) is dedicated to helping professionals and students of all backgrounds develop their voice as an instrument of change using public speaking integrated with writing and performance art. We.APP provides public speaking training and workshops for professionals in all fields, however, since 2013, the majority of programming has been focused on the Young Artists Academy (YAA).  YAA is the only public speaking class offered as an elective or Language Arts (LA) class during the school day. YAA is designed to teach young scholars elementary - high school how to discover their unique voice and create original work that expresses their view on education, home and life.  Writing is used to empower young scholars to present their ideas and reflect their passionate and distinctive world perspective. Young scholars write original works that address self-esteem, leadership, social justice, equity, career goals and diversity.  These narratives combat silence to promote literacy and inclusion which are critical towards disrupting the school-to-prison pipeline.
