The Freedom Writers are committed to education and civil rights. They are determined to share their stories and "pay it forward," therefore their influence continues to spread. Through the Freedom Writers Outreach Program, Freedom Writers work with students and educators where their influence is needed most.

For the classroom

Make your students' learning experiential. Give them the opportunity to interact with a Freedom Writer who overcame extreme adversity to achieve academic success. A video chat is a great curriculum supplement and an effective way to inspire and motivate students to read and write. The conversations are often personal, emotional, and highly relevant to students. 

For educators

Many Freedom Writers have advanced degrees and work in the education field as elementary teachers, secondary teachers, and administrators. A video chat with your staff is an inspiring and informative way to better meet the needs of students.


Catered to your needs

Each Freedom Writer has a different personal story. We specifically assign Freedom Writers who will have the greatest impact on each audience. Additionally, Freedom Writers share the unique and empowering methodologies developed by Gruwell that led to their profound academic and life success.
