826 National: Writing, Publishing, Tutoring
Introduction
826 National is a nonprofit organization that provides strategic leadership, administration, and other resources to ensure the success of its network of eight writing and tutoring centers. 826 centers offer a variety of inventive programs that provide under-resourced students, ages 6-18, with opportunities to explore their creativity and improve their writing skills. We also aim to help teachers get their classes excited about writing.

Our mission is based on the understanding that great leaps in learning can happen with one-on-one attention, and that strong writing skills are fundamental to future success.

Last year our centers—which are located in 
Ann ArborBostonChicagoLos AngelesNew YorkSan FranciscoSeattleand Washington, DC— served over 29,000 students.
