Children and youth have the best chance at success when they feel listened to, empowered, and respected. That’s why Do the Write Thing designs its arts-based after-school and summer programs – reaching 250 students in DC’s most underserved wards – with the help of the youth themselves. Younger children write and produce their own books, learn how to build and control robots, how to plant seeds in rocks, and how to make, market, and sell their own products through entrepreneurship workshops. Middle and high school students use poetry and town halls to raise their voices about issues that matter to them. Inspired by "The Teen New Deal," an advocacy program teaches youth to work for the passage of laws that address racism and other social inequities. Your support teaches youth how to fight hate – with creativity and compassion.
