Youth Speaks Hands Teens the Mic

Published on .

Speak from the heart.
Youth Speaks is a San Francisco-based non-profit aimed at introducing teenagers to poetry, spoken word performance and creative writing. That mission comes through loud and clear in a new series of spots in which a microphone scans four young people and tries to find their voices. When it finds one -- in the kids' hearts, their guts or their minds -- static gives way to full blown pronouncements in the form of slam poetry.

While not a Goodby, Silverstein project, the spare campaign was created by Goodby creatives Stephen Goldblatt and Dave Laden, with Goodby's Ashley Sferro producing and Laden directing.
