We’re committed to building impactful partnerships with corporations and groups invested in the power of writing and the futures of youth.

Not sure how to get involved–or if we’re a good fit for your corporation? We know how many fantastic causes there are. We aim to build mutually beneficial partnerships that support the success of young people and have opportunities throughout the year. To discuss ways to get engaged, please contact Anne Shackleford, Director of Development and Communication.


Pros&Conversation

Pros&Conversation is WriteBoston’s only annual fundraiser, an evening of thought-provoking conversation between student writers and guest authors. This event allows us to bring together out network of devoted supporters, showcase our brilliant student writers, and celebrate youth voice. Dollars raised fund WriteBoston’s professional development for educators and free student writing programs.

Pros&Conversation was held this year on May 9, 2019. Thanks to our sponsors, supporters, and students, it was a resounding success.

Writers at Work

Writers at Work is a corporate volunteer and career exploration initiative of the Teens in Print Summer Journalism Institute.

As a host organization, your company will invite 5 to 10 high schoolers to your offices for a job exploration experience. With assistance from WriteBoston, you will plan activities that showcase your company’s mission and product or service. In the process, your employees will have the opportunity to share what they are passionate about with Boston’s young leaders.

Host our teens and get to know the newest cohort of writers at work.

Rising Voices Awards

The Rising Voices Awards are presented with each new issue of Teens in Print, a citywide teen newspaper published quarterly. Three students receive a $100 cash prize along with a framed copy of their award-winning article.

Help inspire the next generation of youth leaders.

As a reader for the Rising Voices Awards, you’ll celebrate excellent youth writing–while engaging in meaningful volunteering. Partners form a volunteer reading team and participate in a facilitated reading and discussion to select the award winners, and present students with their awards at a teen publication event.
