826NYC wants to partner with your school, community-based or nonprofit organization to create customized writing programs for your students.
If you’re a school, we will run a comprehensive in-class residency that not only aligns with the literacy curriculum in your classroom, but that also results in a perfect-bound publication for your student authors.
826NYC would love to partner with your school if:
You are a Title 1 New York City public school
You will commit to at least one 6-10 week residency in your school
You will provide a partner teacher who will be the lead liaison with 826NYC
Your participating teachers will commit to helping plan and support the residency from ideation through execution
You will pay a fee of 10% of the overall cost of the residency
What you’ll receive from 826NYC:
Comprehensive curriculum design and in-class support from a specialized teaching artist
In-class support from trained volunteers, who work with small groups of students for more individualized attention
Perfect-bound publications for each participating student and teacher
If you’re an organization that works with students and would like to partner with 826NYC for a publishing project, all of the above requirements apply other than a Title 1 status.
Please reach out to our Director of Education, Alana Benoit at firstname.lastname@example.org or 718-499-9884 ext 701 with any questions, or to book your residency today!
