Empowering youth through creative expression.
What is Express 2 Speak:
Express 2 Speak is a program made to help young adults discover new ways to express themselves in safe, creative, and entertaining ways. Tahj uses song, dance, and poetry to help empower young adults and give them a creative tool to use as an outlet. His presentations can bring from small groups to whole schools together. Tahj’s creative skills and ideas make for a fun and unifying experience for kids and adults alike. No school, group, or child is the same, so each presentation and activity is adjusted to cater to the exact needs of the students. If you have any questions you can contact Tahj here.
Express 2 Speak envisions an interconnected global platform for young adults to express both internal and external worldviews through the written, spoken word process.
