Project VOICE uses spoken word poetry to entertain, educate, and inspire. Through award-winning performances and innovative workshops, Project VOICE is dedicated to promoting empowerment, improving literacy, and encouraging empathy and creative collaboration in classrooms and communities around the world. Project VOICE has a lasting impact; students come away from a Project VOICE visit with a higher motivation to create, a belief in their own voice, and a desire to share and listen to each other’s stories.

Project VOICE includes Sarah’s wonderful colleagues Phil Kaye, Franny Choi, Jamila Woods, and Robbie Q. Telfer. Find out more about the entire Project VOICE team here, and learn more about what they do at
