BRAVE NEW VOICES
Brave New Voices is truly a life-changing experience for many of our youth. It is an opportunity for them to explore a new cultural landscape while building relationships with other youth poets and leaders from around the world. Duplicated around the country are smaller events, such as ours, presented by the affiliated organizations to prepare youth in their region of the country for this awesome opportunity! Teens With A Purpose has had the distinct honor to be the organization responsible for preparing Hampton Roads youth for this amazing experience for the past five years.
