Speak Hard

The annual Speak Hard Youth Conference, sponsored by ACT Missouri, is held in Jefferson City, MO at the Capitol Plaza Hotel. For the past twelve years Speak Hard has given youth grades 9-12 the opportunity to learn about underage drinking, substance abuse, and prevention. This year on Wednesday, March 8, teen voices will unite at the State Capital to attend workshops and network with other youth from across Missouri.
