826LA provides a variety of free programming for students ages 6–18, designed to challenge and enchant while strengthening writing skills. Read on for an overview of our programs, and please click on the headers to find out even more.
Our method is simple: we pair students with trained volunteers who provide one-on-one help with homework, reading, and writing.
To get kids excited about writing, 826LA inspires students to collaboratively write a book—in three hours!
Local artists, writers, and professionals teach workshops ranging from puppetry to songwriting.
Because not all students can come to us, 826LA’s trained volunteers go into local public schools to support students with writing in their classrooms.
