826LA is out to help the children of LA develop their writing skills so they can not only succeed academically, but also develop important personal skills to succeed in life.
I truly believe that if we reach out and help these students with their creative and expository writing skills and encourage teachers inspire their students to write, we can really help these kids and give them the power to express ideas effectively, creatively, confidently, and in his or her individual voice.
Through after-school tutoring, evening and weekend workshops, in-school tutoring, field trips, and all of their programs, they provide the support and one-on-one attention to meet the students at whatever level they're at.
Donations have already helped provide free, engaging writing instruction to students throughout Los Angeles, and I believe this organization can do so much more to help the community and children there.
Please consider making a donation to 826LA and help them send writing tutors into LA classrooms, help students at our centers publish chapbooks, and teach students to write and produce radio pieces and short films.
Thanks so much for your support.
