For the first time ever, Youth Speaks will host the Brave New Voices Festival in Las Vegas, Nevada! We cannot wait to embark on this historic journey with you all bringing youth voice, poetry and story to the city of lights with the support of Zappos, the University of Las Vegas, Nevada, Writer's Block and Black Mountain Institute.
