The Writers' Exchange gets inner-city kids excited about reading, writing and their own potential.


All kids will know they are awesome, capable and can achieve anything.


Put the kids first
Treat everyone with respect
Listen and help
Make everything innovative and fun
Look for shared values in our partners and our team

Every year over 700 inner-city kids complete creative literacy projects and receive individualized attention from volunteer mentors to boost their reading, writing and self-confidence. All Writers' Exchange programs are FREE for the kids, youth and families we serve, so we could not exist without the help of amazing volunteers and generous donors.
