This summer, 826 Boston is bringing its Professional Writing Workshop to a group of high school juniors. The workshop series focuses on supporting students in developing and refining their college essays.

We encourage tutors of all backgrounds to apply, and we especially seek volunteers who identify as Black, Indigenous, Hispanic, Latinx, LGBTQ+, and/or multi-lingual so that our volunteers are more representative of the students we serve.

Shifts occur on: July 16, 23, 30, and August 6. There are two shifts each day: 8:45 AM - 11:15 AM and 12:30 PM - 3:00 PM. You are welcome to join us for one, two, or all four of the workshops in the series by expressing your interest below. We will be in touch with next steps. Please email volunteer@826boston.org with any questions.
