About Us

The kids explain it best:

The Writers' Exchange gets inner-city kids excited about reading and writing.

Our vision is that, in the not-too-distant future, ALL kids will know they're awesome and can achieve anything!

In all programs, kids complete creative literacy projects and receive individualized attention from volunteer mentors so that each child can succeed to the best of his or her ability. Most programs end in the kids' work being published in professionally designed and edited publications, and a giant launch party!

About 600 kids participate in Writers' Exchange programs each year, and all Writers' Exchange programs are FREE for the kids, youth and families we serve, so we could not exist without the help of amazing volunteers and generous donors.

The Writers' Exchange Society (our official name) is a registered Canadian charity, number 795045095 RR0001.
