Straight-Up News

The strength of 826 Valencia’s volunteer base allows us to make partnerships with Bay Area schools. We send our volunteers into classrooms to support teachers with their dream projects. Whether students are composing sonnets, researching for term papers, or mastering verb conjugations, 826 tutors are available to sit side-by-side with them and lend a hand to dramatically lower the student-to-teacher ratio.

If you are a teacher and your students could use additional support with any sort of project, please contact Christina Perry. Let us know what you’re working on, when, and where — and we’ll dispatch an enthusiastic batch of trained tutors to your school.

We are currently unable to provide support to any schools outside of San Francisco. As we continue to expand our efforts, we hope to widen our reach.
