Youth Voice Nation

Fulfill The Dream students at Social Justice High School in Chicago had a dream that turned into a national movement. They wanted to find a platform to publish their stories of hope through the expressions of spoken word poetry, rap, essays, murals, sketches and photos. Since no such platform existed, youth decided to develop their own platform and created this book. Youth Voice Nation contains some of the most powerful and dynamic voices of youth from around the nation including cities such as: Los Angeles-CA, Chicago-IL, Milwaukee-WI, Providence-RI, Madison-WI, Beloit-WI, and Cincinnati-OH. This book has also become a movement as it has  become an iphone/ipod application and is helping to give youth a place to share, connect, and envision a better world via the web. Click here for a link to the application.
