Youth Writing Program

Academic Support

New knowledge is the most valuable commodity on earth. The more truth we have to work with, the richer we become.

The Youth Writing Program connects youth writing mentors from across the country with students at Kurt Vonnegut’s alma mater: Shortridge High School.

We are currently seeking Youth Writing Mentors that can commit to regular mentoring for the semester-long Personal Project. Youth Writing Mentors can also sign up on an as needed/as available basis. All are welcome and appreciated, and will be required to submit a background check.

Would you like to volunteer with the Youth Writing Program? Fill out our volunteer form to get started.

Social Justice Writing Workshops

In the spring of 2022, the KVML will offer monthly, virtual Social Justice Writing Workshops that will feature a guest writer or activist. 

Our Partners

Our writing center is affiliated with the International Alliance of Youth Writing Centers, which comes with the guidance of renowned author Dave Eggers. We have partnered with Butler Writers Workshop to offer academic support at Shortridge High School (Kurt Vonnegut’s alma mater).
