CELEBRATING 2 YEARS OF WRITING OUR WRONGS!
The purpose is to share W.O.W. Pledge Cards with a positive affirmation to youth groups and schools of all grade levels and encourage them to commit to using their skills in writing and speaking out against social injustice and bullying.
Although our youth are not of age to vote, we want them to know that their voice is still powerful. We provide an affirmation for our youth to first believe in the power of their voice and to create a mindset that activates their belief in the voice they have to impact change.
Our programs, workshops and curricula are designed to educate youth and build their confidence to own their voice in the world. Through project based learning and development in writing and speaking, we explore the ways they can make an impact for anti-bullying and social justice in the classroom, in the communities and in society.
Our W.O.W. students are challenged through service projects and civic education in advocacy by community leaders and influencers who will help prepare them with the tools to be the change by participating in productive ways to speak out against wrongs and be a catalyst for change.
“I would highly recommend other youth serving organizations to connect with Writing Our Wrongs, because I saw the benefit to our students. I know this program has the ability to impact the lives of any youth that experience this program.”

“Being a volunteer with Writing Our Wrongs, Inc. is always a rewarding experience. [They] have taken on a much bigger role in reaching back to the youth to help them understand that they as well have a voice to speak among their peers to initiate change in their groups, schools and community. I always appreciate the opportunity to volunteer with this organization. “
"I love attending her writing groups with the youth. We have so many talented youth at our facility and it was very fun to be a part of something so great and got their talented wheels in their brains turning. Our youth that we serve are not bad youth, they are our youth that have made bad decisions. She's great with the kids!"
