Who We Are
Spanning the Nation
175 Writing Project sites housed on college campuses prepare 2,500 new teacher-leaders each year. These new leaders join a dynamic network put to work to support 95,000 colleagues in classrooms, libraries, museums, national parks—virtually any space where young people learn, read, and write—ultimately strengthening the writing and thinking of 6 million students, pre-K through college, each year.
With Deep Expertise
NWP’s teacher-powered leadership network spans the country and includes educators with expertise in fields as diverse as media-making, writing in STEM and technical fields, and writing the arts and humanities, as well as youth leadership and civic engagement. This powerful network is supported by a dynamic board of civic, business, and education leaders along with a capable staff.
Robert Rivera-Amezola describes one of his earliest mentors as a “quiet leader,” a person who “called little attention to themselves,” but who led an “extraordinarily impactful life.”
