826LA provides students with the individualized support they need to discover their voices through writing.
Volunteers serve as tutors, mentors, and role models for students; lead writing workshops; support publishing projects; illustrate student-written books; guide students through the storytelling process, and more!
Over 9,000 students receive the benefit of 826LA’s free programs each year, but it’s only possible with your generous support. A tax-deductible donation of any amount helps keep our programs accessible to the students who need them most.
