Launched in the fall of 2016, 826NYC operates a full-time Writers’ Room at P.S./M.S. 7 and Global Tech Prep in East Harlem. Classes of sixth, seventh, and eighth graders come to the Writers’ Room to receive individualized help and attention on writing projects.
Volunteers work with groups of students visiting the Writers’ Room with their class to work on a specific writing assignment, or one-on-one with a student needing extra writing help during their free periods and lunch hours.
Writers’ Room programming takes place from 8:00 AM-2:20 PM, Tuesday through Friday.
