WHAT IS THE COURAGE TO BE THE CHANGE PROGRAM?

Creative Writing & Public Speaking

Our Power of the Pen curricula is focused on using creative writing and public speaking as tools to help youth find and use their voice to impact change in the community. 

Service Is a Standard. Not An Option

Leadership + Service. We instill in our youth that once you know the power of your voice, it is our responsibility to use it for the greater good of our communities and beyond. All lessons and activities are project based and centered around serving where we live. 

Goal Setting & Achievement

The Passport to Life track is focused on tapping into the courage and motivation our youth need to accomplish every goal they set, from making good decisions daily to graduating and becoming good citizens. We help them see their dreams become reality with consistence and hard work.

2 PROGRAMS. 1 MISSION. EQUIPPING A COURAGEOUS GENERATION!

Today more than ever, our youth are demanding to be heard. We have heard the cry, and we are answering the call through action and collaboration. Writing Our Wrongs, Inc. and My Brother's Keeper Foundation have joined forces to provided education and create opportunities for our youth to know their voice through writing and speaking and step into the world with the courage to be change! 


THE PROGRAM TRACK

Students will experience two program tracks throughout the program with a holistic approach of addressing the internal and external factors that affect our students' success. Our goal is to cultivate strong mentor relationships and follow the matriculation of our students and measure the impact of their participation in our program. We are invested to see youth who are marginalized with the same opportunities in academic success, civic engagement, and media and cultural influence. This requires every student to know their voice and how to use it effectively to implement the change the want to see. 

COURAGE + MOTIVATION / MBK FOUNDATION

The MBK Foundation uses The Passport to Life Program Track to teach students courage and motivation through goal-setting, accountability, courage and motivation. 

WRITING OUR WRONGS, INC.

Our mission is to embrace the pursuit of excellence both inside and outside the classroom. We encourage critical thinking and emphasize the learning process over rote memorization.

COURAGE + MOTIVATION

It takes courage to set your goals and have the motivation to reach them! We offer two collaborative program tracks to help our students see results from the goals they set and learn how to overcome internal barriers, distractions and set backs to being their very best. 

SERVICE + PROJECT BASED LEARNING

Our curricula includes service and project based learning. We understand that confidence comes from doing, and that success means knowing how to serve where we live. 

All youth have the opportunity to learn civic responsibility and the power of their voice through media projects and community service. 

MEASUREABLE IMPACT
