We believe in the power of
Austin Bat Cave is a creative community. Our writing programs empower students to find their voices and tell their stories.
Young people yearn to share, express, reflect, and understand one another. Our volunteer tutors not only engage students with creative, hands-on curriculum, but also make the writing classroom fun and inspiring. Austin Bat Cave’s tutors work one-on-one with youth to inspire these burgeoning authors with a passion for reading, writing, and learning. Due to COVID-19, ABC programs are virtual through June 2021.
