Project SPEAKS, Inc. strives to establish programming and services to promote, engage, and enhance the development of growing communities. Project SPEAKS, Inc. is dedicated to helping students and community members, especially those who come from marginalized backgrounds, grow personally, academically, and professionally by combining academic services, civic action, social awareness, and community engagement to promote development in all members of society.

To advance our mission, we strive to:

Vision #1: Provide academic support through peer mentoring, tutoring, and skills development. Additionally, utilize resources to increase access to and persistence through academia.

Vision #2: Enhance leadership and social awareness through a variety of programs, conferences, and networking opportunities.

​Vision #3: Strengthen growing communities through volunteer service, community education, and eliminating barriers to opportunities.


Project SPEAKS, Inc. imagines a world that is developmental, sustainable, and full of opportunities. We believe in an inclusive approach, where equal opportunities and equitable outcomes exist for all. Project SPEAKS is committed to developing and supporting communities to create an environment where systemic barriers are identified, acknowledged, and properly addressed. Through our engagement efforts, Project SPEAKS provides a foundation for social activism and community restoration.

Creating an equitable and just community is an ongoing process that requires individuals to acknowledge and address all barriers arising from the history of bias, discrimination, racism, and organizational structures. These barriers can be both intentional and unintentional, as well as being visible or covert, but they all support the disenfranchisement of the oppressed and the progression of the privileged. 

Project SPEAKS' members and staff engage specifically in communities by promoting pride, addressing social issues, and providing access to the lack of resources impacting those specific communities. 

It is critical for Project SPEAKS and its partners to be explicit in the expression of our collective drive toward these ideals.
