Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
826CHI is a non-profit 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 in mind, we provide after-school tutoring, weekend workshops, in-schools tutoring, help for English language learners, and assistance with student publications. All of our programs are challenging and enjoyable, and ultimately strengthen each student’s power to express ideas effectively, creatively, confidently, and in their individual voice.
826CHI is looking for enthusiastic volunteers to assist with our writing programs, as well as with other aspects of the organization (supporting the Wicker Park Secret Agent Supply Co., providing graphic design and illustration for our student publications).
