826 Boston is a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting students ages 6 to 18 with their creative and expository writing skills, and to helping teachers inspire their students to write.
Our services are structured around the understanding that great leaps in learning can happen with one-on-one attention and that strong writing skills are fundamental to future success. With this understanding in mind, we provide after-school tutoring, field trips, creative writing workshops, in-school tutoring, help for English Language Learners, and in-depth publishing projects.
Each of our free programs seeks to strengthen each student’s power to express ideas effectively, creatively, confidently, and in his or her individual voice.
We're looking for Illustrators for 826 Boston's Storytelling & Bookmaking Field Trips. Field trips are the chance for entire classes to come to our writing center for a few hours of high-energy learning.
One of our most popular field trips is Storytelling & Bookmaking, designed for grades 1-4, in which a class creates, illustrates, and publishes a tale like "Bud, the Grumpy Earthquake" all in one morning! Each student then leaves with his or her own published book. Illustrators draw and make students' characters come to life and illustrate the cover of their magnificent book!
