Comic Book Charities – The Comic Book Project
The Comic Book Project is a program that offers literacy development through and arts based learning initiative. It operates through schools and after school programs that help children create their own comic books about topics that range from bullying to conservation.
It also helps build community with the children as they have to work together to create their comics. The ones that get finished get their comics printed through an alliance with Dark Horse Comics. The Comic Book Project engages children in a creative process leading to literacy reinforcement, social awareness, and character development, then publishes and distributes their work for other children in the community to use as learning and motivational tools.
