Barrio Writers

The Barrio Writers program is focused on teen-age participants and consists of free workshops and additional one-on-one tutoring throughout the academic summer break, with monthly cultural arts events during the school year. Through these workshops and events, students build their skills in reading, grammar, creative writing and freedom of expression through the cultural arts.

The writing workshops are designed to empower the teenage community while establishing a self-sufficient educational program that will represent community pride, perseverance and endless possibilities for following generations.

One goal of the program is to publish an anthology collection of written works demonstrating the diverse backgrounds of teenagers. All profits from the book will be returned to the Barrio Writers program for future years. The long-term goal is to publish a new edition each year with hopes that more neighborhoods will adopt the program.
