KidSpeak® is an annual forum facilitated by the Mayor’s Youth Council, managed by Our Community’s Children, that gives young people in kindergarten through 12th-grade the opportunity to speak directly to legislators, community leaders, and school officials about issues of importance to them. KidSpeak 2015®: Where Are We Going & How Do We Get There? is about how young people see their future sense of self. Testimonies will address who and what is important to them, goal setting, how they are pursuing their goals and the obstacles they need to overcome to reach those goals.
