826CHI supports Chicago students ages 6 to 18 with their creative and expository writing skills, and helps teachers inspire their students to write. We believe that great leaps in learning can happen with individualized attention, and that strong writing skills are fundamental to future success.

Your support helps our students build critical skills in playful yet challenging programs, free of charge. Your gift also provides a platform for these thousands of young Chicagoans to share their stories and ideas effectively, creatively, confidently, and in their individual voice.
