The Power Writers Program fosters literate, ethical and critically conscious young men and women who will be fully prepared to participate in our society. Young people who do not have power over the story that dominates their lives, the power to retell it, rethink it, deconstruct it and change it as times change, are truly powerless, because they cannot imagine a future. This is particularly true for those teenagers who face the gravest challenges living in our nation’s most impoverished and dangerous communities.
