Pongo’s 23-24 Programming is Officially Underway

We’re proud to announce that our 2023-2024 program year is officially underway. In mid-October, Pongo mentors began facilitating poetry writing with youth at the Children & Family Justice Center (formerly King County Juvenile Detention), returning for our 25th year of programming at the site.

Read above to learn more about our first day at King County’s juvenile detention facility and for a poignant piece by a youth poet!

Special Thanks

Special thanks to the City of Seattle Office of Arts & Culture for making Pongo Poetry Project programming at the Children & Family Justice Center (formerly King County Juvenile Detention) possible.
