About Us

Based in South Florida, We Talk Music & Sports focuses on the repercussions of violent behavior, whether inflicted physically or online. We teach kids to stop the violence through music and sports activities. Our founder and executive director, Patricia Young, was bullied as a child and never forgot the fear and hurt she felt. Like her, many kids suffer in silence and do not know how to deal with these types of situations. We talk about ways to be kind, defeat negative thoughts, and constructively feel angry or sad without causing harm. Children learn to positively express themselves and believe in their own dreams.
