Mighty Writers Volunteer Opportunities

Mighty Writers

If you love writing and want to share that love with young people in Philadelphia, we have a volunteer opportunity that is right for you.

Our Mighty volunteers (over 300 every year!) are Philadelphia writers, playwrights, filmmakers, artists and professionals. We all have three things in common: compassion, patience and a willingness to learn from our students.

Below, you’ll find a brief overview of the opportunities available. To learn more, click on the appropriate links below or to the top left of your screen. Join us!

Mighty Tutors work in the Mighty Writers Academy from 3-6pm, Monday through Thursday from September to June. You’ll help students in grades 3-8 with homework and writing activities. New tutors must commit to one day per week for six months. This program runs during the school year only.

Mighty Mentors work one-on-one with young people in grades 4-12. You’ll meet with the same student for one 90-minute session every week for at least six months. Current mentor projects include epic alternate-future stories, collections of rap and poetry, and college application essays.

Workshop Leaders work with our program director to develop short- and long-term writing workshop curricula for students (ages 5-18). Some of our hottest workshops have included: Winter Weather Watch (ages 5-7), Comic Madness (ages 9-12) and Sportswriting (ages 13+). What’s your workshop idea?

Mighty Interns are college students and recent grads who work with Mighty Writers for one semester. As an intern, you’ll tutor, write copy, edit, learn about nonprofit administration and play a vital role in our day-to-day operations. Many Mighty interns stay on to tutor after their internships have ended.

*All volunteers are required to complete standard security clearances.
