What We Do

Through InsideOut’s creative writing programs, students learn to think broadly, create bravely, and share their voices with the wider world. We provide imaginative workshops, mentoring, academic support, and a platform to be heard for students ages 6-19.

We have served 58,000 students and counting. At this crucial time in Detroit’s history, we provide youth with the tools of self-expression to build the city and world they want to live in.

This program shined a light on what I could do with words. Through writing, I found a new person that I didn’t see before.”
