Get Lit

mission:

Get Lit – Words Ignite, founded by Diane Luby Lane in 2006, is a nationally recognized organization made to reach teens, stem dropout rates, and spark dramatically increased literacy among youth in Los Angeles. Fusing the power of classic poetry with the spoken word movement, Get Lit places the greatest poets of our time in dialogue with our youth. Through programs that foster cultural understanding, creative self-expression & performance technique, Get Lit reaches over 20,000 teens each year who transform their lives, families, and communities through art and social activism. Get Lit builds scholars, not statistics, and navigates Los Angeles through this youth-led revolution to let teens reclaim their educations and unearth their potential.
