826LA is a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting students ages six to eighteen with their writing skills, and to helping teachers inspire their students to write. 826LA’s services are structured around the understanding that great leaps in learning can happen with one-on-one attention, and that strong writing skills are fundamental to future success. 826LA offers a wide range of education programs, all free of charge, to more than 8,200 students a year. All of 826LA’s 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.
