826 National is a nonprofit organization that provides strategic leadership, administration, and other resources to ensure the success of its network of eight writing and tutoring centers. 826 centers offer a variety of inventive programs that provide under-resourced students, ages 6-18, with opportunities to explore their creativity and improve their writing skills. We also aim to help teachers get their classes excited about writing. Our mission is based on the understanding that great leaps in learning can happen with one-on-one attention, and that strong writing skills are fundamental to future success. Last year our tutoring centers — located in Ann Arbor, Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, Seattle and Washington, DC — served over 29,000 students. 826 National is seeking bright and innovative candidates for the 826 National General Internship. This position is a great opportunity for someone who is interested in getting a survey of all areas of nonprofit work including: event planning, business administration, marketing and development, social media, editing and publishing, education research and evaluation, and much more. General interns must be able to work out of the 826 National office located in San Francisco, CA, and report directly to our Finance and Operations Manager.
