Enrollment happens in a variety of ways at 826. Anyone can sign up for our workshops or attend our drop-in tutoring hours on Sundays at our Mission Center. Other programs are filled from a waitlist, through community partners, or via school partnerships. Check out the quick links above to learn more about how enrollment works for each program.
It’s true: our After-School Tutoring Program is full, prioritizes returning students and families with economic need, and has a long wait list. We aren’t able to open up spaces very often. If you have questions about the waitlist and how it’s maintained, or want to confirm that you’re actually on it, contact Programs Manager Kathleen Rodriguez at firstname.lastname@example.org.
On Sunday afternoons from 2:30 to 4:30 at our Mission Center, yes you can!
