Since 2012, WordPlay has been a place where youth can grow, learn and develop as people. Our mission is to create spaces for young people to fulfill their potential by discovering, honoring and sharing their voices. Over the years, we have been consistently amazed by the potential of our youth and the depth of their talent and determination that spring forth when given a platform to be heard and celebrated.
Today, we are launching our 2019 "I AM LEGENDARY" year-end campaign. Our goal is to raise $50,000 by December 31, 2019 so that we can introduce young readers and writers into a world of self-expression, imagination and storytelling through our inspiring creative literacy programs.
Join us in making a gift of $25, $50 or more, creating the space for every young person who comes through our doors to fulfill their potential.
WordPlay envisions a world where every child grows up knowing the value of his or her voice.
You can help make that vision a reality.
