Organization Profile

Young Writers Program

The Young Writers Program is a nonprofit organization dedicated to guiding 4th through 12th grade students to become better learners and strong writers. Our volunteers, or Writing Project Assistants, play a huge part in helping students express themselves and feel good about their writing skills. Working as a Writing Project Assistant is a rewarding opportunity to support students in voicing their thinking in writing. We encourage anyone who is interested in reading, writing, and/or teaching to contact us! We hold free workshops throughout the year, which teach volunteers valuable tools and strategies for supporting student writing. They're fun and informative! Workshops are a great way to start your involvement at the Young Writers Program! Are you a teacher who wants to enrich the lives of your students through writing? We can help! Writing projects start in the classroom and are teacher initiated! You pick the project you want to work on and we bring the Writing Project Assistants!
