The robots are coming to Detroit!
For nearly ten years, 826michigan has been making a difference for thousands of students with an army of volunteers in Ann Arbor, Ypsilanti, and Detroit. This year we are growing our work in Detroit, and that’s where you come in! With this Rise Detroit campaign we’re focusing on all the bright shiny new things - new supporters, new gifts, and new partners. Your bright shiny new gift will help us make more of a difference in Detroit. Onward Robots!
826michigan’s services are structured around the understanding that great leaps in learning can happen with one-on-one attention and that strong writing skills are fundamental to future success. With this understanding in mind, we provide drop-in tutoring, field trips, after-school workshops, in-schools tutoring, help for English language learners, and assistance with student publications.
We also believe that the more fun a student has, and the more directly we speak to a student’s interests, the more we can help students find the fun in learning. That’s why our programs are more than just extra homework. All of our programs are challenging and enjoyable, and ultimately strengthen each student’s power to express ideas effectively, creatively, confidently, and in his or her individual voice. In addition to all of your robot supplies, our Robot Supply and Repair Shop in Ann Arbor also features our publications of students’ work.
826michigan was founded in 2005 based on the successful model of 826 National. For more information visit us at www.826michigan.org.
