In-School Programming & Field Trips

Since 1982, Just Buffalo Literary Center has led the way for literary arts education in Western New York.

One of Just Buffalo’s greatest strengths is our ability to reach students of all ages and abilities—gifted and talented, at-risk, or special needs—and we’re proud to work with public, private, Catholic, and charter schools, as well as community centers throughout Western New York.
