Home > About Us > What We Do

One Pen One Page gives youth the platform to share their voices and change the world through creative means.

We educate kids who do not have resources to develop their literacy or creativity. We engage the thoughts of students and let those ideas be heard. We empower young leaders to use the powerful stories told through writing and art as tools to make a difference.

EDUCATE

We help ensure that students are developing the reading and writing skills they need through our fun creative writing workshops. We host online and in-person workshops, and through our curriculum, Read it and Keep, allow educators and organizations to host lessons designed by OPOP about social justice, writing, art, and music.

We provide journals, books, pencils, and other resources to students increasing their literacy through our Reading Rewards Program. Teachers and organizations can petition for funds to start an OPOP Reading Rewards Program in their school, community center, youth organization, and more.

Engage

 

We share the ideas of young people through our online literary magazine, and encourage them to think through our online creativity contests, which connects social change with powerful narratives. Submit work

We also launch initiatives to get students writing for causes they care about. Stay tuned for our April Campaign during National Poetry Month!

EMPOWER

 

We support young leaders making a difference through our OPOP April Action Campaign and Chapter program. Passionate students can start an OPOP Chapter or April Action Project, which will advocate for positive community change using our toolkit. Chapters can apply for funding through OPOP and use our network for their own campaigns and project.

On April 23, 2016, OPOP hosted the first ever Write On! Leadership-Literacy symposium to teach students how storytelling is a powerful tool to raise awareness and make an impact on communities. The symposium which featured young writers, artists, and activists using their creativity for a purpose. Check our sites for updates on the 2017 Write On! Symposium
