The mission of InsideOUT Writers is to reduce the juvenile recidivism rate by providing a range of services that evolves to meet the needs of currently and formerly incarcerated youth and young adults.
Using creative writing as a catalyst for personal transformation, these young people are empowered with the knowledge and skills necessary to successfully re-integrate into our communities, becoming advocates for their future.

Help us transform lives.
More than 2,000 young people are currently incarcerated in Los Angeles county juvenile detention facilities and worse, once they are released, more than 70% will be re-incarcerated. InsideOUT Writers, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization is dedicated to breaking this vicious cycle through its Writing and Alumni Programs. With your help, we can help more young people stay out of jail and in their schools and communities, where they belong.
IOW can’t say enough about the incredible talent, passion and life experience of our teachers and mentors. We’re proud to have teachers who have taught for several years and mentors who continue to be actively involved past their initial one-year commitment. If you plan on becoming a part of the IOW family, you should know more about this amazing circle of people.
