826DC is a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting students ages 6-18 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.
Volunteers helped us support more than 4,400 students between the ages of 6-18 in the District of Columbia in 2014 and 2015. Volunteers create and lead or support writing workshops; mentor students in writing and literacy; support publishing projects and book releases; provide small group homework help; guide children through story creation; illustrate stories; and spread the word in our storefront.
