Speak It Forward (SiF) workshops use writing and performance as a foundational “Trojan Horse” to entertain, captivate and build trust with their classrooms and audiences. Once the connection has been established, SiF uses a combination of humor and personal testimony and a research-driven approach, to motivate and assist participants in discovering their own strengths, embrace their failures as learning opportunities, and build stronger, healthier relationships with themselves and others. This process helps to transform people’s perspective of self, enhance interpersonal skills, while also improving their interview skills, communication abilities, and their understanding of language as a critical tool.
