Once Upon a School

Once Upon a School: The essence of the program is that it's like school, but it's not school. 826 National is a nonprofit tutoring, writing, and publishing organization with locations in seven cities across the country. Our goal is to assist students ages six to eighteen with their writing skills, and to help teachers get their classes excited about writing. Our work is based on the understanding that great leaps in learning can happen with one-on-one attention, and that strong writing skills are fundamental to future success.

Once Upon a School is challenging adults to support their local public schools. Their goal is to collect 1,000 stories told by those who participate.
