Session Title: One Student, One Tutor, and One Pufferfish at a Time

Join 826 Valencia staff in our Writing Lab for the inside scoop on our mission to close the academic achievement gap through 1:1 tutoring, student publishing, and the store filled with authentic pirate supplies that happens to serve as our front. We'll give a brief overview of our history and an update on our plans to open a second center in the Tenderloin neighborhood before diving right in to writing activities meant to inspire our participants' creativity and help them imagine the wild possibilities and powers inherent in the art of storytelling and bookmaking.
