826 Boston is a nonprofit youth writing and publishing organization that empowers traditionally underserved students ages 6-18 to find their voices, tell their stories, and gain communication skills to succeed in school and in life. Our services are structured around the understanding that great leaps in learning can happen with one-on-one attention and that strong writing skills are fundamental to future success.

Volunteers tutor younger students on homework and help them write a collection of creative stories in our youth writing and tutoring center. Each of our free programs seeks to empower students to express their ideas effectively, creatively, confidently, and in their individual voices, and our volunteers are a big part of making that happen.
