I'm a huge fan 826 Valencia in San Francisco - an amazingly creative tutoring spot set up by Dave Eggers. Watch this TED talk and weep with joy that things like this exist.
When I was approached to do the wall illustrations for the London version I jumped at the chance. The Ministry of Stories is a creative writing and mentoring centre for young people in Hoxton. It masquerades as a Monster Supply Store from the front with amazing monster friendly products designed by Alistair Hall.
