Review for Get Lit Words Ignite, Los Angeles, CA, USA
I first got to know Get Lit several years ago when I began volunteering for them. Get Lit is not simply a curriculum that stems the increase of illiteracy in "at risk" youth. It is profoundly effective in motivating students to read more, learn more, write more and build confidence in themselves. Get Lit is a community that embraces all who participate in it. A safe haven where youth can express themselves and be embraced. The program turns out some of the most incredible "spoken word" poets who must be seen and heard to truly understand the scope of this amazing organization. I am profoundly moved by the important work Get Lit does and the results I see in front of me on a daily basis.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Find a way to get better funding so that more schools both in Southern California , as well as the rest of the country, could introduce the curriculum to their students.
