All Ways Up - 826LA College Access Summer Associate
826LA is a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting students ages 6 to 18 with their creative and expository writing skills, and to helping teachers inspire their students to write. Our services are structured around our understanding that great leaps in learning can happen with one-on-one attention, and that strong writing skills are fundamental to future success. The overriding goal of this project is to provide economically disadvantaged students from Title I schools college access support, ensuring rising seniors develop their personal statements during summer to submit to colleges in Fall and scholarships in Spring.
