Proper nutrition is essential to fueling children's ability to learn, a process that is hampered by ingesting the sugars and fats found in most campus snacks. The after-school tutoring program 826LA, which helps students enhance creative writing skills, complements its brain food with nutritious snacks to facilitate instruction while providing necessary vitamins and minerals for healthy living.
The creative-writing workshops at 826LA’s centers foster the imaginations of young students, helping them to unleash their creative potential and refine their diligently written pieces. Each day, students ages 6 to 18 work with an experienced volunteer tutor to respond to writing prompts or polish previous drafts. In the afternoon, children are fed a nutritious nibble of the vegetable, fruit, or grain variety, ensuring that focus stays on the work at hand, and not on rumbling bellies. Volunteers also spend time talking to eager learners about proper eating habits and healthy life choices, inspiring students to maintain wholesome habits after each day's activities.
