Get Involved

Community is at the core of what we do.

Partner with Us!

Our work thrives through intentionally collaborative partnerships with NYC public schools and libraries, community-based organizations, and universities. Partnerships enrich our work and scale our impact in underrepresented communities. We create multi-year partnerships with the schools and libraries we serve. We collaborate with other arts education organizations to scale impact through professional development and shared resources.

Teach with Us!

Join our vibrant community of Creative Writers, Visual and Multimedia Artists, Musicians, Dancers, and Theater Artists. Learn to turn your artistic, creative process into social justice teaching tools for NYC schools, libraries and community-based organizations.

Volunteer with Us!

We create corporate and individual volunteer opportunities to help us amplify youth voices, providing experiences that support a leveled-educational playing field for underserved communities.

Help our budding poets get published during Anthology Days, working one-on-one with students to prepare their original poems for publication.

Join students on Community Paint Days when students paint canvas murals based on their class community-poems.

Show your support during our End-of-Year Celebrations where our student performers take the stage and share their writing and artwork with their communities.
