826CHI is looking for volunteers from all over the city of Chicago! Our troop of dedicated, enthusiastic, and oh-so-wonderful volunteers are the backbone of our organization, which provides free creative writing and tutoring programs to students around the city.

Volunteers assist in running every single student program, in addition to serving as lead agents in the Wicker Park Secret Agent Supply Co., designing posters, stuffing envelopes, etc. As such, we are always looking for more volunteers to join us in expanding our mission. We know you're talented and we know you're busy, so we strive to honor whatever time you are able to give us -- whether that's volunteering for one field trip a month, teaching one workshop per session, or serving as a weekly tutor. Please note that for certain programs, namely after-school tutoring, we require that volunteers commit to participating one day per week, and commit to volunteering for a minimum of 4 months. Other long-term In-Schools projects may also require a more regular commitment, depending on what our partner teacher's needs are for that term.

826CHI is currently seeking enthusiastic volunteers for winter and spring 2017 programs!
