InsideOut touches the lives of students every day.

For more than 20 years, we have been amplifying and validating youth voice in Metro Detroit, both in and out of the classroom. Through creative writing and poetry, students explore the power of self-expression. Your support provides transformative learning and performance experiences, and helps every student to “think broadly, create bravely and share their voice with the world.”

Your donation allows InsideOut to deliver powerful, literacy-based student empowerment programs such as:

  • Writer-in-Residence In-School Programs
  • Citywide Poets After-School Program
  • High School Writing Centers
  • Louder Than a Bomb: Michigan’s High School Poetry Festival
  • Poetry Anthologies (every student published!)
