    About the DC Youth Slam Team (DCYST): Split This Rock's DCYST uses poetry to teach and empower youth from the DC metropolitan area to speak up about issues of social justice. With annual travel to regional and national poetry slam festivals, the team provides outstanding opportunities, training, and a platform for talented youth to develop their writing, performance, and public speaking skills with guidance from mentors and teaching artists. The team is a year-long program for youth in DC and the surrounding counties in Maryland and Virginia (affectionately called the DMV area). Young people must be between the ages of 13-19 and live in the area to be eligible for the team.
