This #GivingTuesday, St. Louis’ underserved youth need your help.
Education is one of the strongest predictors of future career success, upward mobility, and health. But under-resourced schools, poverty, and toxic stress (like abuse, neglect, and other violence) hinder the ability of the most at-risk students to learn and succeed, perpetuating the cycle of poverty and violence that affects us all.
YourWords STL has been addressing the needs and challenges faced by young people in these communities for nearly a decade. Through tutoring, creative writing workshops, and collaborative projects, we empower them to overcome the trauma they’ve experienced, ﬁnd their voice, and share their stories — to, ultimately, improve their lives and their communities.
But, we need your help.
That is why, this Giving Tuesday, we are asking you to invest in these young people and their future. Give hope so that they can give it all they’ve got. Invest in programs that empower our youth to build a better future — for themselves, their communities, and the entire St. Louis community.
Give the gift of a better future by supporting YourWords STL this Giving Tuesday.
Your generous donation makes it possible for us to continue to provide the life-saving programs young people like Sean and Tyrique depend on.
