The CEO of 826 National describes how merging a retail and education space has made learning more amenable to students.

Gerald Richards, the CEO of 826 National, a nationwide network of eight retail spaces that are integrated with tutoring centers spoke at the PSFK CONFERENCE SAN FRANCISCO about how their organization connects with students and the local community.

The core idea of these centers is to create an environment that destigmatizes tutoring, while creating a space that makes learning fun for students. This third space that is not home or school enables students to feel more comfortable while working on their writing and reading skills.
