YourWords STL is a nonprofit in St. Louis. We provide one-on-one tutoring, creative writing workshops, and collaborative writing projects to amplify the voices of St. Louis youth.
We work to bridge racial, cultural, and economic divides, by honing the ability of people to tell their stories, while providing opportunities for the ears and hearts of the community to listen.
As a new organization staffed entirely with volunteers, we are looking to develop a fundraising team to help us plan special events. While all of our tutoring services are provided by volunteers, YourWords STL needs funds to purchase supplies (laptops and basic writing supplies for our budding authors), cover insurance costs, publish professionally-bound chapbooks of our students' writing, and cover costs to recruit and train new tutors, as well as provide continuing education to our tutors so that they can provide the highest level of quality in teaching.
Volunteers with experience planning fundraising events as well as new volunteers looking to learn these skills. We are a creative organization open to original ideas as well as tried-and-true classics!
