The Young Authors' Book Project 08-09
 
05:12
[WATCH IN HD] The Young Authors' Book Project is 826 Valencia's biggest and most thrilling student publishing project every year. This year, for the seventh book of the series, 826 Valencia is partnering with veteran teacher Pirette McKamey and 45 of her juniors from Mission High School in San Francisco to create a collection of personal essays based on the Golden Rule, the ethical concept that emphasizes treating others as you wish to be treated. The stories reflect the students' own understanding of what it means to "do unto others," how they see it applied, locally and globally, and what struggles they have had trying to live by it. Using family stories, personal experiences, everyday interactions, and their dreams of the future, the students are creating a collection that is an ethical guide to life. After six weeks of in-class writing with one-on-one tutor support, students make all the major editing and publishing decisions over eight weeks in evening editorial board meetings. Joe Loya, author of The Man Who Outgrew His Prison Cell, is providing the foreword for the book. In early February 2009, when the book is published, Joe and the students will celebrate alongside the 826 Valencia staff and volunteers at a glorious book release party for family and friends.

Our reach and our work is made possible by more than 6,000 active community volunteers who dedicate their time and energy to our mission each day. They are the heart and soul of 826.

They come from all walks of life—teachers, artists, chefs, doctors, and more—and in them, our students see futures and careers to which they can aspire. Volunteer opportunities are wide-ranging, from helping a student edit their paper, to developing products for our themed storefronts, to helping our staff behind the scenes with administrative or design work. No matter how you contribute, your time is always valuable and valued.
