BENEFITING: 826NYC Inc.
The 826NYC Writers’ Room will be 826NYC’s first Manhattan outpost, providing 311 students in grades six through eight with individual and small group literacy support on cross-curriculum writing projects annually, including the publication of student writing in at least ten chapbooks annually and inclusion of student writing in a perfect-bound anthology. The 826NYC Writers’ Room Coordinator will manage programming and train, schedule, and oversee program volunteers. The coordinator will work with teachers at the schools to construct effective projects and encourage cross-curriculum collaboration (e.g. History and English classrooms partnering on an essay project).
