Mighty Writers Rivera


MW Rivera is our first recreational center site, launched in 2018. Located in a neighborhood that is home to many of Philadelphia's Puerto Rican and Dominican families, this rec center hosted FEMA following Hurricane Maria. When we met some of the families who moved here after the hurricane, we knew we'd found our new home. MW Rivera's bilingual programs focus on poetry, comic books and film. Above, Rivera leader Eva Smith pitches in on a gardening and poetry workshop.
