Teen girls, in the best of times, need the support, community and guidance that WriteGirl offers. But the pandemic continues to present immense additional challenges for teens. Teens have been isolated and ignored. They have been expected to show up to do online school work where no teacher is present. They have been unable to plan ahead, with all the uncertainty of complex hybrid educational approaches. They have cared for family members, and many have lost loved ones to COVID…all while being a teenager. Join us for this vital fundraiser to support WriteGirl.
Founded in 2001, WriteGirl is a nationally-recognized creative writing and mentoring organization serving more than 500 teens annually, mainly from LA’s high-density neighborhoods. WriteGirl envisions a world where all teens live, write, and speak boldly as they become inspiring, transformative leaders, driven to effect positive change in their communities. Now in its 21st season, WriteGirl has maintained a 100 percent success rate in helping its seniors not only graduate from high school, but also enroll in college. WriteGirl received national attention in 2021 when WriteGirl alum Amanda Gorman performed her poetry at the Biden-Harris Inauguration. WriteGirl also works with boys and co-ed groups under the name “Bold Ink Writers.” As a founding member of the Arts for Healing and Justice Network (AHJN), Bold Ink Writers brings creative writing workshops and mentors to youth who are incarcerated or systems-involved.
