    CWP program beneficiaries--teachers, parents, young people--are empowered with literacy and leadership skills they will carry with them for years to come.

    Luckily, my great-aunt nurtured my creativity. I infuse that passion into my volunteerism and my firm's grants help CWP kids explore their joy of expression.

    CWP's poetry and murals projects let me work with kids of diverse backgrounds, ages and nationalities and share my passion for drawing and painting.

  • Micaela Blei

    It's clear CWP is about collaboration: trainees do tons of it! We also had sessions on job-hunting, classroom management and integrating art forms.

  • Chad Frisbie

    CHAD FRISBIETEACHING ARTIST

    With my students I return to the question, "What can poetry do?" I love how that forces me to rethink my craft while I teach the next generation of creative thinkers.

  • Lucy Friedman,

    CWP inspires kids to dream, create, and share. It gives them a voice filled with pride. I am hopeful that all kids not only become literate, but also enjoy literacy.
