Training for PEN Community Service Projects

Trainees perform two community-oriented free expression projects: writing seasonal cards to imprisoned writers; and discussing/writing on the question, “what does freedom of ‘expression’ mean to you?” Then, they learn the steps to organizing and carrying out those activities, to lead groups in their communities in these exercises.

* Many schools require students to perform community service as a condition for graduation.
