WordPlay Cincy is a nonprofit organization with a mission to help Cincinnati’s young people fulfill their potential through reading, writing and storytelling. They offer three models of programming: community-based, school-based and mobile programs.
COMMUNITY-BASED PROGRAMS are FREE and open to K-12 students across the region, taking place after school, on Saturdays and during the summer. These programs combine reading, writing and movement for a creative, project-based learning experience. Programs for the upcoming fall will take place after school and on Saturdays. (For enrollment information, please visit WordPlay’s website.)
SCHOOL-BASED PROGRAMS are embedded within local schools, allowing WordPlay to reach students where they are and eliminate many barriers to access. These programs include in-class projects such as Readers Theater and Poet Trees, as well as the WordPlay Writers Room, located at Aiken High School.
MOBILE PROGRAMMING takes place off-site and in partnership with other organizations, such as Clovernook Center for the Blind and Visually Impaired and the Down Syndrome Association of Greater Cincinnati.
