Since today is DAY OF THE GIRL, I want to give a shout out to an amazing organization, WriteGirl.
Within a community of writers, WriteGirl promotes creativity and self-expression to empower girls.
WriteGirl reaches into the Los Angeles community to help middle and high school girls find their voices through writing. Volunteers mentor individual girls through weekly writing meetings and/or monthly workshops. The atmosphere is fun, safe, creative, and empowering.
And look at all that WriteGirl has accomplished:
I am a WriteGirl volunteer. If you are a writer in the Los Angeles area and would like to join me, CLICK HERE.
Here's a picture of the WriteGirl volunteers at a training meeting. Can you spot me? Clue: I'm taking notes and wearing glasses.
