The Friday Notebook Project – About Us

Our Vision
is to support a more just, inclusive, and sustainable society by creating writing and learning communities for people with a wide range of backgrounds and abilities.

Our Mission
is to share with teachers, specialists, librarians, and program staff a simple yet highly effective approach to writing that boosts literacy, learning, and engagement for children, teens, and young adults.

We Value
stories and writing as a pathway to identity, voice, and agency in the world. Helping children and teens know that their stories matter can be a life-changing experience.
