Project WHAT! is recruiting!
Get PAID $$$$ to share your story. Project WHAT! is looking for youth between the ages of 15-24, who have had an incarcerated parent and are willing to share their experience. We are looking for youth who share our desire to increase awareness of what it’s like to have a parent in prison or jail, and to improve services for youth with incarcerated parents. As a member of Project WHAT!, you will work with a writing instructor to write a true story based on your personal experience of having parent(s) incarcerated; speak publicly at conferences and workshops (including sharing the story you wrote); and facilitate trainings for adults and youth. You will receive support and training to achieve these goals.
