Pass the Mic Youth is dedicated to a world where every child is literate.


Pass the Mic Youth is an independent, non-profit organization dedicated to child literacy, the creative arts and the representation of youth voices on the national and international stage. We use the power of creative writing, art, cutting edge curriculum and non-traditional mediums to ensure that every child that enters our program leaves reading at the appropriate age and grade level, with a sense of purpose, self-confidence and a love for learning and a fearlessness in pursuing the creative arts.


Our Commitment to Excellence For Every Child

Pass the Mic Youth affirms all that all children, regardless of race, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation or national origin, are capable of:

Learning and creating

Mastering new and complex skills

Offering meaningful contributions to society

Becoming leaders in their schools, communities and governments


Pass the Mic Youth programming fosters community through our core beliefs:

All children posses intelligence and the ability to think creatively

All children are capable of becoming leaders in their communities

All children are valuable, and deserved to be valued

All children are loved, and deserved to be loved
