We transform everyday kids into published authors.
We are Sacramento’s premier literacy organization. We like to think of ourselves as a plate of yummy brownies with spinach hidden in the batter. Literacy is more than handing out library cards and books. It’s more than reading alongside a young person. Often we hope something will “spark.” Those are all great pursuits, but we like to go a step further. We make young people active agents of their own change by asking them to write and communicate their stories for a public audience. When youth engage in writing, storytelling, imaginative learning, and they often become lifelong readers.
Writing and publishing creates an appreciation for language, and provides young people with the critical tools they need to achieve success, both academically and socially. We help prepare youth to become productive, creative members of our Sacramento community. We are happy to show young people how to play with words, which can help them grow into lifelong, literate learners.
