Represent Team Telling Room in the 2019 TD Beach to Beacon 10K by raising or contributing $250. We'll provide a race-day shirt so you can show off your TR colors.
Your donation will help us keep our writing programs free for young people of all abilities and backgrounds–future leaders whose voices will have a significant impact on our community, now and in years to come.
At The Telling Room, we empower youth through writing and share their voices with the world.
Founded in 2004, The Telling Room is Maine’s only youth-focused literary arts education organization, offering innovative, effective and often life-changing writing programs for more than 4,000 Maine kids each year.
Focused on young writers ages 6 to 18, The Telling Room seeks to build confidence, strengthen literacy skills, and provide real audiences for our students. Telling Room programs reach youth from nearly 100 schools in 70 towns across the state annually, including those from diverse backgrounds and experiences. All core programs are 100% free to students and their families.
The Telling Room has received regional and national recognition for its innovative work, including a prestigious National Arts and Humanities Youth Program Award from the White House in 2015—the nation’s highest honor in our field—as one of the top 12 youth arts and humanities programs in the United States.
