YourWords STL

Support our work. Support St. Louis.

An investment in our programming is an investment in St. Louis. By enabling one child to graduate from high school, find meaningful work and live a full, independent life, you enable the entire community to flourish. Generous donations to YourWordsSTL allow us to purchase laptops, publish chapbooks, and continue to build our library of literature and resources. These resources, which empower our creative, academic, educational and social missions, help us continue build and grow our life-changing programs.

Our Funders.

Bessel van der Kolk. M.D.
Language gives us the power to change ourselves and others by communicating our experiences, helping us to define what we know, and finding a common sense of meaning.
Rebecca Wallace-Segall
Human beings yearn to share, reflect, and understand one another, and they use these reflections to improve the state of things, both personal and public.
Kathryn Feldt
YourWordsSTL gives young people a way to find and use their authentic voices, to process their emotions, and to feel hope and confidence in the future.
Bessel van der Kolk M.D.
Feeling listened to and understood changes our physiology; being able to articulate a complex feeling, and having our feelings recognized, lights up our limbic brain and creates an a-ha moment.
