826 LA pairs volunteer writing mentors with kids ages 6-18, to help tell the stories they want to tell, the way they want to tell them — whether that be through fiction, journalism, screenwriting, or poetry. They also often help those students publish their stories, so they can share them with the world — like they’ll be doing later this week at a book fair and garden party called Changing the Story
