November Global Pay It Forward: 826 Valencia

Overview. We followed our region Northern California and discovered San Francisco’s 826 Valencia. This is an organization that focuses on supporting under-resourced children ages 6-18 with their reading and writing skills. They also help local teachers get children excited about the literary arts!

Impact. 826 Valencia assists over 6,000 kids every school year, and has grown enough to open another non-profit in the D.C. area. Coast to coast they are reaching 22,000 kids.

Happening now. At 826 they provide so many opportunities to help kids literary dreams come true! They hold summer programs, college prep programs, field trips, workshops, and after school tutoring. With 826 Valencia kids are able to even get their work published!
