THE YWP ACADEMY -- You Can Help
As you know, this site is managed by Young Writers Project, a passionate, small band of people that helps thousands of youths around the U.S. and world become better writers so they can succeed in school, college and beyond. Writing is a vital skill and we believe more needs to be done to help kids become proficient.
By continuing to provide us financial support you help pay for our time -- and the time of leading experts and artists -- to provide youths guidance and encouragement on youngwritersproject.org or leading a workshop.
UPDATE: Your donations are helping an at-risk child participate in our new donation-based formal online learning center, The YWP Academy.
We just finished a highly successful pilot with about 50 youths who tried out our early workshops on YWP Academy. Their feedback led to many small improvements and we soon will begin rolling out monthly workshops for all youths to join. YWP is also beginning partnerships with universities and colleges who will, each month, offer a workshop of their own design. And we plan to have summer workshops specifically for those youths headed college to help them transition into a new type and workload of writing.
And don't forget: Our free, online respectful teen writing community is open to ALL youths ANYWHERE, so if you know some youths who like to write or who want to get better at it, send them to youngwritersproject.org. They will get feedback, support and may get published all over including on our showcase magazine, The Voice!
In this time of relative chaos, I give thanks to the inspiring, creative and optimistic voices of youth!
