Youth Speaks is an organization that helps teens find their voices. The group engages them in writing poetry, then empowers them to become leaders and activists in their own communities. Through this piece, Founder and Executive Director James Kass, tells us how Youth Speaks got started, the poets they've worked with, and the reach of the organization. We'll also hear some teens performing their poetry. Then, Al wraps up the episode with a personal story about what poetry means to him and we finish things up with excerpts of poems from poets from across the country.
