Urban Word NYC provides free creative writing, performance, spoken word, and hip-hop resources to teenagers in NYC. As a youth-driven program, teens are encouraged to discover and use their voices to bring to light the issues that are important to them. This program is for young writers in all five boroughs of New York City, aiming to reach under-served populations of teens in particular. Urban Word NYC knows that youth need a creative and critical outlet and a community that supports them. All projects aim to build this community inside Urban Word's regular after-school workshops and performance programs, and also beyond. Urban Word NYC promotes critical literacy and positive social dialogue across boundaries of age, race, class, gender, culture, and sexuality.
