You're Worth More Than Anything
It’s the fall of 2021. In Beacon Centers in Brooklyn, Queens, Manhattan, and the Bronx, in a cafeteria, in a classroom, in a schoolyard, in a computer lab, students are writing. They’re making lists of their favorite people and places, defining their nicknames, and explaining the real problem with celery. They’re writing letters to the friends and family they love, and those they’ve lost. They’re writing poems and stories, advice and encouragement, and reminding us: You’re Worth More Than Anything.
This project was produced by 826NYC in collaboration with the New York City Mayor’s Office for Community Mental Health, the Department of Youth and Community Development, and Beacon Centers of New York City, and was written by the next generation of educators, athletes, performers, scientists, entrepreneurs, and authors, who are, indeed, worth everything and more.
Proceeds from the sale of this book benefit 826NYC, a nonprofit organization encouraging the exploration of endless possibilities through the power of writing.
This book is also available as a downloadable interactive PDF.
