Encore Day of Service: Great Los Angeles Personal Statement Weekend!
   
** Sign up for training on Oct 19 and 25th. ** You'll spend the day sitting next to a student in conversation to learn their stories, and help shape their experiences into essays that reveal students' character and determination.

826LA needs 200 trained volunteers who will advise and coach students on their writing that weekend. Students from four LAUSD high schools will have four hours to work with a trained 826LA volunteer, you, and access to computers, and free lunch. Volunteers for this event can sign up for either or both days!

You'll spend the day sitting next to a student in conversation to learn their stories, and help shape their experiences into essays that reveal students' character and determination. We emphasize reflective and thoughtful writing.  Every volunteer for this event must go through 826LA's personal statement training in advance.

About 826LA826LA is a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting students ages 6 to 18 with their creative and expository writing skills, and to helping teachers inspire their students to write. Our services are structured around our understanding that great leaps in learning can happen with one-on-one attention, and that strong writing skills are fundamental to future success.
