S.T.R.O.N.G. Talks are workshops, assemblies, and professional development sessions used to motivate, educate, and empower both adults and youth on the importance of reducing gang and youth violence. With a wide array of inspirational speakers who share real-life experiences and tangible truths, our STRONG Talks carry the message of non-violence and community empowerment to thousands.
Every keynote, workshop, assembly, and PD session is tailored to fit the needs of your group, school, or organization. STRONG Talks are a main source of fundraising for our organization.
