Mission Statement

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.

Description

Our services are structured around our understanding 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, we provide drop-in tutoring, after-school workshops, in-schools tutoring, help for English language learners, and assistance with student publications.

All of our programs are challenging and enjoyable, and ultimately strengthen each student's power to express ideas effectively, creatively, confidently, and in his or her individual voice.

Would you recommend 826LA?

by Janea W. (November 26, 2012)
I absolutely LOVE 826LA. They provide their tutors and volunteers with all of the tools they need to make their sessions with students the most effective and productive for the students' benefit. There are all kinds of opportunities available both weekends and weekdays, and there are even evening tutoring sessions available for those who can't make it during "business hours." I can't say enough good things about 826LA - I'm a fan!
