BENEFITING: ALL WAYS UP FOUNDATION
826LA is a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting students ages 6 to 18 with their creative and expository writing skills, and to helping teachers inspire their students to write.
826LA 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.
They provide after-school tutoring at their centers in Echo Park and Venice, evening and weekend workshops, in-school tutoring help for English language learners, and assistance with a variety of student publications.
Every program is challenging and enjoyable, and ultimately aims to strengthen each student's power to express ideas effectively, creatively, confidently, and in his or her individual voice.
With the money we raise 826LA can continue to grow and provide one-on-one tutoring to over 10,000 Los Angeles students. Any amount helps fund their free writing and literacy programs.
