Mighy Writers is amazing! I have been to their office locations, special events, fundraisers ... this is a first-class organization with committed leaders, passionate volunteers and highly engaged kids who are learning, sharing, growing, honing their writing skills and advancing their abilities, plus having a lot of fun and support while doing it. The response from the community, donors/supporters, the kids and their families has been overwhelmingly positive and is fully justified. Mighy Writers is changing kids' lives for the better, in so many ways.

Mighty Writers works with children to develop their inner beauty, creativity, and self-confidence. I have spent time at their site, and worked with some of their students. The outcomes that the children who attend their workshops create are truly astounding and awe inspiring.

I am a teacher at a Philadelphia public high school. I first learned about Mighty Writers when my nephew (a student at a Philly public elementary school) started attending the free after-school workshops. For my family, this was a godsend. We are always looking for low-cost, enriching after-school activities for Sam, and this fit the bill. He enjoyed the workshops, so I was pleased to learn that they also offer programming for high school students. This year, two students at my school have joined the staff of Mighty Post, Mighty Writers' on line student newspaper. Mighty Writers has offered them the additional academic challenge that they have been craving, and it has also helped them to build confidence in their writing skills. Another student, an English Language Learner whose native language is Chinese, has also been involved with Mighty Writers. She shared with me that attending some of the Mighty Writers workshops helped her to improve her English, fall in love with writing, and get ready for college. At Mighty Writers, she said, volunteers were able to work with her one-on-one, a woefully rare situation in traditional high schools. Based on the great experiences my students have had, I am encouraging more of my students to get involved. In Journalism class, students posted comments to a classmate's Mighty Post article, and currently, one student is developing a story that she hopes to submit. I follow Mighty Writers on Twitter and Facebook, knowing that I might turn up valuable opportunities for my students. I have yet to visit their office spaces in the city, but already I think of Mighty Writers as one of the best educational non-profits in the city. They have established direct connections with both teachers and students, and they sustain those connections through a balance of social media, online publication, and face-to-face interactions.
