Mission

OUR MISSION

The flagship initiative from Women Wonder Writers, The Write of Your L!fe™, is a 12-week program with a mission to break the cycle of victimization and abuse for students faced with adversity through cultural arts and restorative justice mentoring programs.
 
We bring this program to schools, correctional institutions, mental health facilities, and community centers throughout California to effect positive change on the individual level.

OUR VISION

It is our vision to strengthen youth, their families, and the community we serve by:
 

 

  • Empowering youth to be educated, empathetic,
    and expressive
  • Cultivating awareness and advocacy towards
    social injustices
  • Decreasing student dropout rates thus lowering crime rate
  • Building tolerance and empathy
  • Working with victims to stop the cycle of
    victimization and recidivism

Meeting Participants Where They’re At

The Write of Your L!fe™ is designed to creatively engage and mentor those who have been affected by trauma, crime, or any other hardships, teaching them resilience, empathy, and healthy self expression through art and writing. We encourage participants to write their journey and overcome their past so they can become dynamic, successful, and confident individuals.

For Students, Parents, and Educators

Students who face challenges at home may struggle in the traditional academic setting. As a student, parent, or educator, this can present many challenges and questions about what to do next.

 

The Write of Your L!fe™ offers a safe space for students to practice healthy forms of self-expression, gain communication and cooperation skills, and learn to negotiate conflict effectively. Learn more about how you can participate as a student, parent, or educator below.
