â€œThere is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.â€ â€”Maya Angelou 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 daily afterschool academies, long- and short-term writing classes nights and weekends, teen scholar programs, mentorships, 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 cityâ€™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 Philadelphiaâ€™s literacy crisis. Some forty percent of our cityâ€™s students drop out of high school and half of all working-age adults have basic literacy issues. These are the statistics weâ€™re out to change. Our Mighty Writers studios are located in four Philadelphia neighborhoods: MW El Futuro, 1025 S. 9th St. MW North, 1801 Diamond St. MW South, 1501 Christian St. MW West, 3861 Lancaster Ave. Stop by and see us anytime.
