Can 4 minute speeches change the world? With Speak4America, we believe they can.
Join our movement! Speak4America started in Dallas, Texas, to become an online community platform where high school students are empowered to speak up to "4" minutes about an idea of tangible improvement or change they want to inspire and lead in their school or community. These speeches are publicized through the Speak4America online platform where you have the ability to upload speeches and then receive community volunteer feedback and support to help further your causes, projects, or initiatives. A platform that lets you share your ideas with others in your school or community.
In this day in age of endless divisive ranting on television and social media blaming "the other person" for the problems in America, the focus to speak about issues in a constructive and unifying manner is simply missing. It's time to have a student-led movement of take-charge enthusiasm calling for tangible volunteer projects and bringing people together.
E pluribus unum: from many inspired actions we will improve our schools and communities, one by one, and make America better for all. Today’s media often leads people to darker corners of vice. Conversely, celebrating speeches that inspire good works, when structured with a far-reaching internet community platform, can stimulate huge multiplier effects of virtue that build up communities as we build up each other, one idea, one project at a time!
Be the voice inspiring real improvement projects in your school or community! Let's do this to make a difference and get things done with volunteers! Let's do this to demonstrate and improve your speaking and leadership skills! Let's do this for the love of your school, community, and country! Let's do this so your call to action will be publicized on the S4A online platform! Watch as founder Luke Blazek introduced S4A's 2019 live speech event to kickoff this national movement!

Check out this call to action video. No rants, no drama, no disrespect. Instead, JFK inspires a nation to go to the moon. His speech is clear, concise, compelling and confident. Similarly, we challenge you to deliver a powerful motivational speech about an improvement you want done at your school, and then step up to lead volunteers to get it done! Therefore, we are partnered with VOLY.org; a cloud based software which connects thousands of volunteers with opportunities of service.
