826 Day 2018 — Sharpen pencils, sharpen minds!

“What makes me excited to come to 826 for after-school tutoring is the kind support that I get from the tutors… It is amazing to see how close we can all get despite us being there for homework help.”

— Ciro B. TNT student

826LA is on a mission to get 82.6 volunteers signed up for the first month of programming in the new school year by August 26, or as we like to call it, 826 Day.

Help us with our New (school) Year’s resolution!

Sharpen pencils, sharpen minds, and sign up below!

Use #826Day to share your volunteer or 826LA-related story to inspire one person you know to sign up too.

If you’re already an official 826LA volunteer, welcome back! All you have to do to help our students start the new school year off strong is sign up for sessions on the projects calendar.

If you’ve always wanted to become an 826LA volunteer but just haven’t gotten around to it, stop procrastinating! You know what the kids say these days: new (school) year, new you. Our students can’t wait to meet you.
