SpeakUp! is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) public charity dedicated to helping teens develop supportive relationships with the adults in their lives. We enable teens to talk openly, honestly and without judgment about difficult topics and reach out for support within their homes and schools.
SpeakUp! focuses on the fact that no matter what the problem is – stress, drugs, alcohol, depression, anxiety, suicide, relationships, social media or others – the solution always begins with realizing you are not alone and having the courage to speak up and ask for help. All teens benefit from learning how to have courageous conversations with important adults in their lives.
SpeakUp! currently partners with over 40 middle and high schools in the greater Philadelphia region. These consist of urban, suburban, public and private schools.
