A short documentary about what happens when 826LA visits a local high school for 6 weeks and publishes a book with student writers.
The Young Authors' Book Project is an annual project done in collaboration with a local high school, teachers, and 826LA volunteers. The 2009-2010 project was done at John Marshall High School.
826LA 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.
With this in mind, we provide drop-in tutoring, after-school workshops, in-schools tutoring, help for English language learners, and assistance with student publications.
All of our programs are challenging and enjoyable, and ultimately strengthen each student's power to express ideas effectively, creatively, confidently, and in his or her individual voice. -826LA website
