Mission

Mighty Writers (MW) teaches Philadelphia kids ages seven to 17 to think clearly and write with clarity so they can achieve success at school, at work and in life.

What We Do

Our model is to build welcoming and fun youth writing centers in challenged neighborhoods, with a robust roster of year­ round programs that include:
- An after school Mighty Academy, in which elementary and middle school kids complete homework and writing projects from 3 to ­6pm, four days a week.
- Themed writing workshops for elementary, middle and high school students, including Girl Power!, Building Brotherhood, Greedy Readers, Comic Books, Cursive Writing, and many, many more. Workshops range from single to multiple sessions.
- Mentorships that pair kids and professional writers in weekly sessions.
- A College Readiness Initiative that includes high school workshops, 24­ session SAT prep courses, college admissions essay nights, college tours and a weekly Teen Scholars program at each location.
