826NYC is dedicated to helping students, ages six to eighteen, strengthen their writing skills and to helping teachers inspire their students to write. Our work is based on the understanding that great leaps in learning can happen when trained tutors work one-on-one with students, and that strong writing skills are fundamental to future success. Last year, we served more than 2,300 students.

For over ten years, 826NYC has sparked students' imaginations with inventive writing and publishing projects. Our programs are rooted in the simple idea that celebrating creativity is key to engaging youth. Ultimately, as public schools continue to cut back or eliminate arts programs and dropout rates continue to climb, our model offers a sustainable way to assist under-resourced young people in the nation's largest school district.
