I have been trying to volunteer for this Philadelphia nonprofit for a few months now. Luckily, they have a wait list to volunteer. Personally, I’m heartbroken that I haven’t been called on to tutor these young scholars, but I am happy the program has so much support from the community.
Mighty Writers is located just a few blocks from our school at 15th and Christian! It is open for students between the ages of 7 & 17. They are one of the few amazing programs offering a solution to the literacy crisis plaguing this city. I applaud them in all of their efforts. These kids are what it’s all about.
Please check out their list of writing classes that range from blog writing, 1o-minute playwriting, writing in TV news, and superhero storytelling… just to name a few.
And if’ you’re daring enough… sign up!
