Maybe you need a few other reasons to help WriteGirl:

  • Many of our teens attend schools with over 3,000 students. The counselor to student ratio in Los Angeles of 810:1 is one of the worst in the country. We know they aren't getting the individual help they need

  • This spring, one of our teens who had been incarcerated just six months ago, was accepted to two colleges, thanks to help from her WriteGirl mentor and WriteGirl resources!

  • Many of our girls face tremendous challenges including abuse, neglect, depression and much more. A caring role model can change their lives and indeed has changed many lives!

  • We have amazing volunteers. We counted - our volunteers collectively donate 2,000 hours EVERY MONTH to help girls. They are poets, songwriters, journalists (yes, they are creative, too!), screenwriters, novelists...

  • We have great partners. Some of most creative institutions in Los Angeles host our workshops every month, such as:

    - The Autry Museum
    - MOCA
    - The Los Angeles Times
    - The National Center for the Preservation of Democracy
    - The Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences





Support Creative Writing and College Guidance Programs for Los Angeles teens.

There is nothing more hopeful than listening to the powerful words of a young woman.
