Invite a Speaker Inviting a staff member or youth speaker to speak to your group is a great way to introduce others to the work we do.

Invite a speaker from YouthLink to your event. We have staff members and young people who speak on a wide range of topics including:

  • General YouthLink and Youth Opportunity Center information and the state of homeless youth in Minnesota
  • The importance of basic needs access in a young person’s journey
  • The importance of educational and employment pathways for young people experiencing homelessness
  • Housing options and barriers for young people
  • The importance of mental and physical health and wellness care for youth
  • Youth stories and examples of barriers faced and successes achieved

If you’re interested in learning more about hosting a speaker in your office, school, or faith community, please contact Jelena Song at 612-252-1280 or song@youthlinkmn.org.

YouthLink works with nearly 2,000 young people experiencing homelessness each year.
