WritersCorps: Youth Perspectives

In celebration of 20 years of empowering youth through the power of creative writing, we’ve produced a short video that features some of our students sharing their experiences at WritersCorps. Hear them talk about the impact this program has had on their lives.

Some of these students are also featured in our 20th Anniversary poster series in downtown San Francisco. Each poster features a portrait of the student and an excerpt of his or her writing.
