All of 826michigan’s programs are temporarily only offered virtually

What To Expect

Students bring unfinished homework or school assignments to each session and are paired with volunteers in a safe, supportive, learning environment. Through individualized support, students strengthen their academic engagement. The individualized attention of volunteers improves students’ self confidence and encourages them to be socially invested in a community of learning.

This is a homework-based program. If you’re interested in participating in 826michigan programs, but your student does not have homework regularly, please check out our After-School Writing Lab.
