In recognition of National Poetry Month, join Student Life’s Service-Learning Program for an on-campus service project with the Free Minds Book Club.

The Free Minds Book Club, a nonprofit that believes books and creative writing have the incredible power to teach, build community, inspire individuals and change lives. 
Free Minds members are incarcerated youth charged as adults who participate in book clubs and creative writing workshops that help them express their thoughts, experiences, emotions, and hopes. 
At our Write-a-Thon, we’ll read their poetry and write encouraging comments that will be returned to the youth.
