A heartwarming project of staggering beauty

Dave Eggers was recently honored for his efforts to promote reading through the 826 National project, which describes itself as a nonprofit tutoring, writing, and publishing organization with locations in seven cities across the country. Our goal is to assist students ages six to eighteen with their writing skills, and to help teachers get their classes excited about writing. Our work is based on the understanding that great leaps in learning can happen with one-on-one attention, and that strong writing skills are fundamental to future success.
