Celebrate the Voice of Every Child.
Our mission is simple: we inspire young people to discover the power of their voice.
Using one-on-one mentorship, low-income students learn how to write original stories and see them brought to life. Thanks to thousands of volunteer mentors, actors, and classroom teachers, we serve more than 60 public schools in Los Angeles, New York City, San Francisco, and Austin, reaching over 2,000 students in elementary, middle, and high school each year.
As a result, young people learn that their voice matters.
