Programs for Youth
The Writing Mentorship Project (WMP) allows high school upperclassmen to participate in a 6-week intensive summer internship that expands their skills in professional confidence. Teen leaders create writing workshops to facilitate within summer programs for ages 10-13, as well as develop skills in group dynamics and project management. WMP interns have mentored youth from The Peter Paul Development Center, taught workshops at the Full STEAM Ahead Conference, worked with middle schoolers at Salvation Army Boys & Girls Club, and much more. This opportunity to mentor peers empowers teens as leaders and helps them discover their career passions and pathways to success. This internship has the potential to be paid thanks to partnership with the Mayor’s Youth Academy.
