Our Mission: Strengthening kids and communities through the power of stories.
LitWorld is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization founded by literacy expert Pam Allyn in 2007. LitWorld works with a broad coalition of national and international partners to ensure that young people worldwide can experience the joy and transformation of reading, writing, and storytelling.
Our year-round, child-centered programming is designed to develop each of the 7 Strengths which LitWorld sees as inherent in every child. Our programs encourage self-expression, build understanding, and cultivate confidence, using literacy as a tool and pathway for self-empowerment.
Stories are humankind’s greatest resource, and these stories are the key to creating social change.
When kids have access to spaces where they are free to explore their identities, discover their strengths, and express their dreams, they become empowered to create lasting change in their lives, in their communities, and beyond.
The Abaton Calendar is a resource created for and by voice talent, to help create meaningful connections and forge and maintain professional and personal relationships. (And hopefully, have a hell of a lot of fun in the process).
