Founded in 2012, Read and Write Kalamazoo (RAWK) is a nonprofit organization based in Kalamazoo, Michigan, devoted to nurturing intellectual and creative confidence in youth in Kalamazoo County through creative writing workshops, community partnerships and reading-themed events.  

RAWK’s mission is to celebrate and amplify youth voices through the cultivation of reading and writing skills via joy, creativity, equity, and access. Only people who are undoubtedly passionate and wildly capable of fulfilling this mission should choose to read on.

We are seeking three individuals who are dedicated to and passionate about empowering youth and uplifting youth voices. People who are comfortable living and working in the rich universe that exists outside of the status quo. People who believe deep in their hearts that every young person’s life and voice matters and that building communities that support our youth is a vital tool for liberation.
