Since 2001, WriteGirl has been helping girls discover confidence, self-esteem, communication skills and the power of their own unique voice. Through mentoring, writing workshops, public readings, performances, and publications, WriteGirl teens explore poetry, fiction, journalism, screenwriting, songwriting and more.

Monthly workshops (Saturdays) are held near downtown Los Angeles. In addition, In-schools workshops happen across LA County on a weekly basis.

• Orientation/training dates for new volunteers TBA (Sept/Oct).

WriteGirl welcomes women from diverse professional backgrounds to join our energetic community.
In addition volunteering at workshops, we need women to help with planning events, college support, book marketing, and more.

Apply your professional skills, enrich a young woman's life - and let her enrich yours.

It almost sounds like this group could be a franchise for a realty-based TV show--something that airs for a half-hour from 4-4:30 pm for high school girls, after school.

I'm wondering if enough material can be shot during the monthly meetings for 4 TV shows--but I guess there could be follow-up with the persons on the show, during the month. There could be a VO narrator, too, as well as experts in a panel commenting on the moves made by the show's people.

Could be a nice way to empower high school girls.
