Be a superhero for literacy at the Brooklyn Superhero Supply Co.
Be the face of a unique education nonprofit in Brooklyn by volunteering with 826NYC and the Brooklyn Superhero Supply Co. 826NYC is an education nonprofit that operates the Brooklyn Superhero Supply Co. to help fund its free tutoring and writing programs, which serve over 4,000 students a year. As a store volunteer, you'll be an ambassador for our programs and first line of communication with the outside community.
You'll also have the opportunity to sell capes, secret identity kits, and cans of all kinds of superhero necessities--intelligence, invisibility, and chutzpah to name just a few. You can assist shoppers as they use our de-Villainizer, Cape Tester, and more.
The store is open seven days a week, 11am-5pm, with morning and afternoon shifts available. Volunteers typically come by for an 11am-2pm or 2pm-5pm shift. If neither of those work, please get in touch regardless - the store can't operate without volunteers and we will work with your schedule.
