WriteGirl is a creative writing and mentoring organization that promotes creativity, critical thinking, and leadership skills to empower teen girls.

WriteGirl has received two grants from Art for Justice, one in the fall of 2017 and one in the fall of 2018. Learn more about both grants below.

Funding in 2017 supported the pilot of new programming and curriculum that included specific job skills training and college entrance guidance, and supported youth in their transition back to their home communities. In the following year, WriteGirl sustained, enhanced, and expanded its capacity to deliver mentoring and pathways to college and/or employment for the youth it serves.
