Review for Playwrite, Portland, OR, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I recently had my first Playwrite experience. It is an amazing program. I was very moved to see the work that the children that had so bravely shared. Their stories were touching and profound and I respect the struggle and feelings they must have experienced in the process of writing the work. I applaud all those involved, and believe that letting our youth process their experiences is not only healthy and transforming for those involved, but also for our whole community. I do not know any of the writers, but I was proud of every one of them. I donated that night and know that this program needs to be funded richly!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

being an audience member, and being moved to tears by the honesty of the child writers.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Being surprised by how raw and truthful these kids are. They aired emotions that few adults every want to talk about, and at the end of the night, you could see the children beam with pride for having their work and feelings acknowledged.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Kind, compassionate, and giving!

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Keep people out of prison! It gives the children the gift of seeing their own strengths and power. I believe we all have wounds on some level, and these young people have learned to process and work through them rather than turning to violence or drugs.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

One time

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
