Welcoming Families to 826 Boston

December 4, 2018

We recommend living by the five rules of Family Writing Night every night:
1. Be kind.
2. Write in any language.
3. Speak your truth.
4. There are no mistakes.
5. Have fun!

Students who attend 826 Boston programs have transformative experiences. And the parents we meet are a part of that transformation, becoming our biggest supporters and helping us connect to the Boston community in a meaningful way. The families of the After-School Tutoring and Writing Program packed the center to share their stories and make connections with one another. Working alongside her grandson rekindled Toni’s love of writing at our Family Writing Night. “I used to write poetry, but I haven’t written in a long time.”, she said. We love hosting and connecting with the families that make 826 Boston special.
