Volunteer with the BOLD INK WRITERS PROGRAM

Help boys write their way to brilliant futures.

Bold Ink Writers is a program of WriteGirl. WriteGirl is a creative writing and mentoring organization for teen girls in Los Angeles, founded in 2001. WriteGirl pairs professional women writers with teen girls for creative writing workshops and mentoring. Read more about WriteGirl here.

Now we invite you to join our exciting new program for teen boys! Teen boys need role models, mentors, leadership skills and positive support to give them tools and strategies for managing the challenges they face in their communities, at school and at home. The Bold Ink Writers program offers creative writing as a vehicle for self-expression and personal development in a group setting, with accomplished writers as workshop leaders.

Bold Ink Writers is seeking men to lead creative writing activities and mentor teen boys (and co-ed participants) at group workshops this summer. Our workshops and events are designed to help young people cultivate their creative voices and develop the communication skills they need to attain academic and professional success.

Bold Ink Writers workshops will take place in a variety of settings in the Los Angeles region, from community centers to detention camps, with a focus on helping underserved teen boys from diverse backgrounds. Our next set of workshops will begin in August 2016 and will take place during weekday afternoons and on weekends.

Join the Bold Ink Writers program and help teen boys write their way to brilliant futures.

Once we have reviewed your application, we will contact you with more information about the next training and orientation available. 

WHAT WE EXPECT FROM YOU

We are seeking experienced writers in all genres. Volunteers must have strong communication skills and an interest in helping teen boys develop their creativity and individual voices. All volunteers are required to attend a full-day training and orientation session. You will meet the Bold Ink Writers leadership, learn our approaches and techniques in working with youth as well as complete an individual intake interview. Following the training/orientation, upon acceptance to the Bold Ink Writers program, volunteers must complete a criminal background check prior to any workshop or event with youth.

WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT FROM US

We are a lean, hard-working and high-energy organization. You can expect clear and frequent communication from our leadership. We will do our best to offer you a rewarding experience volunteering with the Bold Ink Writers program.
