Link to 826Michigan website

826michigan is a nonprofit organization serving students in Ann Arbor, Ypsilanti, and Detroit, Michigan. 826michigan inspires school-aged students to write confidently and skillfully with the help of adult volunteers in their communities.

What is 826michigan’s free drop-in tutoring program?
826michigan is proud to offer a completely free tutoring program for students between 8 and 18 years old. “Drop-in” means that students may arrive at any time while the program is running and receive homework help from one of our tutors. Students are not required to pre-register, but they do need to bring homework or school projects. Like all 826michigan programs, it is free to participate.

Drop-in Writing
Drop-in Writing is a perfect way to hone skills and do creative work outside the school setting. We welcome all students to 826michigan’s Drop-in Writing at our headquarters in Ann Arbor and libraries in Ypsilanti and Detroit. At Drop-in Writing, we experiment with writing prompts, get constructive feedback on poems, learn new techniques, discuss creative writing with other students, and have plenty of opportunities for students to publish, record, and perform their work!
