826NYC hosts after-school tutoring Monday through Thursday from 3:00pm-5:30pm in Park Slope. Develop long-term mentorships with NYC public school students of all ages and while helping them finish their homework and become published authors!
Tutoring offers the chance to give back to the community while also getting to know a bunch of awesome students and volunteers.
826NYC 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 belief that great leaps in learning can happen with one-on-one attention and that strong writing skills are fundamental to future success. With this in mind we provide after-school tutoring, field trips, workshops, and temporary and ongoing in-schools writing-based programming. All of our free programs are challenging and enjoyable, and ultimately strengthen each student's power to express ideas effectively, creatively, confidently, and in their individual voice.
