About us

Our mission is to teach Philadelphia kids (ages 7 to 17) to think and write with clarity so they can achieve success at school, at work and in life.

We offer a daily afterschool Academy, plus long- and short-term writing classes at night and on the weekends. We also have a Mighty Teen Scholars program, mentorships, intensive SAT Prep courses and college essay writing classes.

All our programs are free to Philadelphia students.

Our volunteers are integral to our success. Over 300 of the city's best creative minds (writers. teachers, journalists, artists, etc.) teach and mentor some 2,000 kids at Mighty Writers annually.

Everything we do at Mighty Writers is designed to combat Philadelphia's literacy crisis. Some forty percent of our city's students drop out of high school and half of all working-age adults are functionally illiterate. These are statistics we're out to change.
