Our Mission

Support our mission by creating your own fundraiser.

Free Write Arts & Literacy engages incarcerated and court-involved youth in the performing, visual, and literary arts so that they become the narrators of their own stories and the authors of their futures. By designing creative space to empower incarcerated and court involved youth, Free Write supports its students in developing educational and career opportunities that reduce recidivism.

By engaging in one-on-one literacy tutoring and workshops in creative writing, visual art, and music production, Free Write students build competencies in reading and writing, art making, technical skills, community building, and critical thinking. Students hone and exemplify these skills through publication, exhibition, and performance opportunities in the detention center and in the community.
