If kids aren't writing and reading at grade level by age 9, stats show as many as 50-80% of them will drop out of school, join gangs, or go to jail.

How you can help

Our goal is to provide our curriculum, via an Online course, to kids in need of literacy assistance. This will allow us to broaden our reach beyond Los Angeles. We will work with students for eight weeks, teaching them how to write creative stories. Each session will cover a different area of storytelling and individual instruction will be provided through weekly feedback.

About this nonprofit

Reading, Writing, It's Exciting (RWE) works with at-risk kids (ages 6-8) who need the most help with writing and reading. We teach them how to use their imaginations to write stories -- and as they're having fun with that, they're learning how to become better writers and readers. We also provide them with a memorable experience by arranging for professional actors to perform their stories.
