Welcome to the Santa Cruz County Community Corrections Partnership Speakers Bureau!
The Speakers Bureau program was developed in response to a need identified by the community for quality speakers to share their stories of involvement in the criminal justice system and interest from the formerly incarcerated community in participating in such a program.
Through training with public speaking professionals as well as peers, the program prepares individuals affected by the criminal justice system to effectively share their personal story at speaking engagements such as community forums, presentations, schools, meetings and other community events.
Audience members regularly comment on the power of the speakers' stories and their effectiveness in breaking down stereotypes and opening hearts and minds.
We have dozens of trainees available for your next speaking engagement. Please contact us or the speakers individually to arrange an event!
