Our Pen Pal Program is for kids 4 to 14 years old. It launched recently with 31 pairs (62 students in all). We paired students from the Chicagoland area with youth around the nation.

Benefits of Having a Pen Pal In This Digital Age

  • Improves reading, writing, and comprehension.

  • Encourage youth to take someone else's perspective and to think outside of themselves.

  • Make friendships

  • Promotes patience

  • Supports development of social skills

  • Learn more about other's culture

  • Old letters can be treasure-trove of memories
