BENEFITING: Big Class, Inc.
Big Class offers a variety of free innovative programs that provide under resourced students, ages 6-18, with oppurtunities to their creativity and improve their writing skills. We also aim to help teachers get their students interested about writing. Our services are structured with the understanding that great leaps in learning can happen with one on one attention and that strong writing skills are fundamental to future success.
With this in mind we run a writing studio on St. Claude Avenue in the 9th Ward that hosts free workshops and an after school program, Open Studio. We also collaborate on special writing oppurtunities in the community and work with schools and teachers to enrich writing experiences through student publications and volunteer support.
