826NYC is a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting students ages 6-18 with their creative and expository writing skills, and to helping teachers inspire their students to write. The group's services are structured around its belief that great leaps in learning can happen with one-on-one attention and that strong writing skills are fundamental to future success. With this in mind, 826NYC provides drop-in tutoring, field trips, after-school workshops, in-school tutoring, help for English language learners, and assistance with student publications. All of 826NYC's free programs are challenging and enjoyable, and they ultimately strengthen each student's power to express ideas effectively, creatively, confidently, and in his or her individual voice.
