Volunteer with 826LA and help kids succeed

Have some time to help kids succeed in school?

826LA is looking for volunteers who can give any amount of time to tutor students from elementary through high school. The LA-East location is in Echo Park on Sunset Boulevard (between Logan and Lemoyne).

826 is a non-profit organization founded by author Dave Eggers to help young people develop their creative and expository writing skills. With locations around the country, 826 provides drop-in tutoring after-school, in-school programs, and weekend workshops designed to demonstrate how much fun writing can be.

If you're not sure you have time to commit, you can also support 826LA with an online contribution or by purchasing an item from the Echo Park Time Travel Mart, which fronts the writing lab.
