Urban Word currently collaborates with over 100 New York City schools and programs annually to provide a wide variety of arts to students in NYC as well as professional development workshops to educators on site in schools and youth organizations.

Our dynamic mentors and teaching artists lead workshops that provide fun, yet rigorous learning experiences where students gain artistic, academic and social-emotional development. Our programs can be designed and tailored to fit the needs and interests of your group.

Due to COVID-19, we have successfully transitioned our workshops and programs to the virtual space, and we can do the same for your classroom. Our teaching artists and mentors are proficient in Zoom, Google Hangout, Microsoft Teams, and WebEx.

Our programs and workshops can be designed and tailored to fit the needs and interests of your group.

Urban Word works closely with your leadership to help facilitate and galvanize the relationships needed to not only launch this program, but also to provide support and secure the platforms needed to champion youth writers. We know nonprofits are often understaffed and under-resourced, so we have intentionally designed the program to be easy to launch and manage with the following areas and provide partnerships with the leading national literary arts organizations.
