We are so happy to have a partnership with the CA/T program at Columbia. The students who are involved benefit so much from the writing and literary adventures they are guided through.

CA/T is a great program that provides organizations with accessible writing programming. During their time at The Door, the young people learned various styles of writing and connected to the Teaching Artists in a deep and meaningful way. I definitely recommend this program!
