At 826, Tomorrow's Volunteers are Today's Students
"I come here because I can relate to the students. I grew up this way. I struggled with English writing and English speaking. I know the importance of receiving positive reinforcement, and that's what students get when they come to 826LA. I volunteer because my heart is in helping students."—Vicente Ruvalcaba, 826LA volunteer
Imagine your city in the year 2050, when volunteering is as common as putting gas in your car or eating lunch. A time when individuals find the gratification they're searching for by helping and connecting with others. It can and must happen.
