Located in Roxbury’s Egleston Square, 826 Boston is an award-winning nonprofit youth writing and tutoring center dedicated to teaching writing to underserved students, ages 6 to 18, and to helping Boston Public Schools (BPS) teachers inspire their students to write.

An independent, locally founded organization, 826 Boston is a chapter of the vibrant national network launched by writer Dave Eggers.

In September 2013, the 826 network won the American Library of Congress Literacy Prize for its “innovative history of addressing community illiteracy…and its unique approach to helping at-risk K-12 students achieve reading and writing proficiency.”

Since opening its doors in 2007, 826 Boston has enlisted 2,500 trained volunteers to provide academic tutoring and writing support to more than 10,000 underserved youth from Roxbury, Dorchester, and Jamaica Plain.
