Chapter 510 provides in-school tutoring, creative writing workshops, and publishing opportunities for K-12 students in Oakland.
We share a vision for Oakland as a place where our youth and their perspectives are visible and our teachers are honored and supported.
Chapter 510 was founded by a group of Oakland residents who, inspired by 826 Valencia, wanted to create Oakland's own literacy project focused on supporting teachers and developing creative and expository writing skills for students.
Like the chapters of 826 National, we are a volunteer-powered organization that recognizes young people’s ability to communicate powerfully through words and print.
In the next two years, we will open a writing center, retail and community space: a dynamic resource for all students, families, teachers, and volunteers.
