Mighty Writers’ mission is to teach kids, ages 3-17, to think clearly and write with clarity so they can achieve success at school, at work, and in life. Through afterschool and summer writing programs, Mighty Writers develops unique and enriching communities, champions the stories of diverse youth writers, and drives each student to reach their maximum potential. Mighty Writers is the only non-profit that provides free, high-quality, bilingual, culturally, and community-oriented writing programs to children, ages 3-17. Less than 70% graduate high school in the areas served, and the literacy proficiency rate hovers around 35% for their grade band. To accomplish their goals, Mighty Writers’ programs take a holistic approach. They know that kids can’t think clearly when they are hungry. That’s why Mighty Writers continues to support their communities with food and other essential resources. Through the organization’s core values of resilience, respect, and optimism, young people develop their superpower – the power of the pen!
