Non-profits help Kids Learn to Write While Wearing Superhero Costumes

Jeffrey Freymann-Weyr, Pop Culture: Fighting for Truth, Justice, and Creativity, NPR, June 9, 2008.
There are a total of 826 nonprofit organizations in seven U.S. cities that assist kids with creative writing.  The environment is extremely kid friendly, with mannequins wearing super hero attire within large spacious rooms filled with comfortable couches and tables.  The program offers tutoring as well as inspires children to write creatively, teaching them the power of language.  Kids work with one another to write stories, which are then illustrated, printed, and bound.  This is a unique program run by volunteers that promotes literacy through the use of a creative curriculum.
