Description

We see good fortune in your new year!

ABOUT 826 VALENCIA

826 Valencia runs on the generosity of others! Last year with support from 1,200 volunteers, many generous donors, and the local community, 826 Valencia reached 7,000 students through free writing, tutoring, and publishing programs. 826 Valencia also published students' stories in books, magazines, and podcasts ranging from family hardships, to immigration, to robot cats and other quirky characters highlighting the important voices of our city's youth. 826 Valencia believes that writing is essential to success in school, career, and beyond. Thank you for participating and supporting their work!
