826NYC is a small non-profit that provides much needed literacy, writing and other English Language Arts learning support to public school teachers and students in the NYC area.
By working with hundreds of volunteers from the New York area writing community, including editors, publishers, journalists and authors, as well as film directors, television producers and even radio hosts, we are able to provide outstanding, high-quality educational programming to students in need, at no cost to the school, the students or their families.
Our program is beneficial to Brooklyn and the rest of New York and is also easily replicable in thousands of neighborhoods across this country. We are largely volunteer driven and believe that everyone can participate in a child's education. To that end, we hope others see our success and find a way to bring that success to their own communities. You can find out more by visiting www.826national.org.
