826NYC is a nonprofit writing center designed to help students ages
6-18 develop their writing skills. We are dedicated to providing
students with free access to writing workshops, publishing projects,
and one-on-one help with homework and English language learning. All of
our programs are challenging and enjoyable, and ultimately strengthen
each student's power to express ideas effectively, creatively, and
Curious passersby and residents of Park Slope are familiar with the
Brooklyn Superhero Supply Co., where superheroes and civilians alike
can purchase tights, masks, grappling hooks, secret identities, and
various related tools in the art of caped vigilantism. But even the
plainest superhero knows that things are not always as they seem.
Through the store's swinging bookcase lies the writing center, 826NYC,
where hundreds of volunteers teach students to write?and to love
writing. The writing center began offering free drop-in tutoring,
writing workshops, and field trips to New York City students in
September 2004. Since then, the organization has expanded its
innovative programming to include the Young Adult Writers' Colony, a
satellite tutoring center in partnership with the Brooklyn Public
Library, specialized journalism workshops with NYC public schools, and
an ever-expanding library of student publications.
