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.
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 after-school tutoring, evening and weekend workshops, in-school 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 their individual voice.
To get involved, you must complete the following:
- Attend a volunteer orientation
- Get Live Scan background checked
- Complete an online volunteer application
Sign up for an orientation today: http://826la.org/volunteer
We are looking for folks with day time availability, as early as 8am until 3pm, Monday-Thursday
Specifically for our In-schools and Field Trips programs.
