Self-awareness. Empathy. Positive relationships. Setting goals and achieving them. These are some of the elements WordPlay blends into our literacy programs, building social-emotional awareness alongside reading and writing skills.

From community writing workshops to school partnerships, from written publications to public performances, WordPlay's programs are designed to meet the needs of every unique population we encounter. Our highly trained program staff and teaching artists blend creativity with learning to help students develop strong reading, writing and storytelling skills. The results are students armed with the power of increased confidence, resilience, and critical thinking skills who know not only who they are, but that they have the power and resources to accomplish their goals.


WordPlay's mission is to create spaces for young people to fulfill their potential by discovering, honoring and sharing their voices
