SAYS is a movement to transform education. Founded in 2009 at UC Davis by Dr. Vajra Watson, SAYS breaks the chains of underachievement by elevating the voices of young people and creating spaces for students to become authors of their own lives and agents of change.


Through year-round programming, SAYS strives to change the world through education and empowerment. Building on a foundation of critical literacy and spoken word performance poetry, SAYS services support the improvement of schools through teacher professional development, classroom instruction, and after-school programming. SAYS utilizes evidence-based pedagogies and an award-winning curriculum to prepare people to serve as cultural keepers, artistic dreamers, and scholar activists who work within and beyond the walls of schools to enact and embody a transformative educational praxis.
