Write After School



Reading and writing go together like superheroes and capes. Write After School students work alongside 826NYC staff and volunteers to build their reading, writing, social-emotional skills, and unleash their imagination as they play and learn about the power of language. Three times per year, students revise their creative writing for publications that are printed in English and Spanish and shared with families, volunteers, and community members at celebratory readings.

This program will be in person in our Park Slope center (372 5th Avenue, Brooklyn) for the 2021-22 school year.

Space is limited in all 826NYC programs, and we prioritize free programming to the students who need our support most. Write After School is for students in grades 1-8, whose families meet our income qualifications. Students whose families are outside these qualifications may apply separately for Write Away Workshops, Write All About It, and Dungeons & Dragons & Writers, for a low enrollment fee.
