While people say that technology is making us dumber, I’m convinced that the Internet is pushing us to focus on our writing again. There’s no doubt that our generation communicates through the written word more than our parents’ generation did, but we need to understand that text speak often isn’t the answer (tho it can b… sometimes). The reality is that most young people are natural storytellers, they just need a little help directing their creativity. The Telling Room is a Portland, ME based non-profit that helps them do that. The organization’s goal is “to build confidence, strengthen literacy skills, and provide real audiences for [its] students.” They work with young people from the ages of 6 to 18 with a belief “that the power of creative expression can change our communities and prepare our youth for future success.”

I could use the written word to tell you more about The Telling Room, but why do that when they have a perfectly good video? (The irony is intentional.)

The Telling Room has a wide range of programs that “enlist the support of local writers, artists, teachers, and community groups.” That sounds good enough, but it’s even better consider students who participate in The Telling Room’s programs are far more likely to be recognized for their academic achievement and can raise their grades a full letter over a full school year. If you’d like to get involved, visit The Telling Room’s Jobs page. Right now they’re looking for a Grant Writer. It’s only half-time, but it’s still well worth looking at.
