826 National is growing, and we need your help! Based in San Francisco, the 826 National office is looking for creative, hardworking individuals seeking meaningful internships in the nonprofit world. If this describes you and you have an interest in fundraising, marketing, editing, event planning, research, program evaluation, or business administration, then this is the place for you.

At 826 National, our interns are an important part of our team, helping to support staff with national initiatives that keep our tutoring and writing centers running. On any given day you may find yourself doing a number of different projects, from writing text for the newsletter to helping coordinate a nationwide fundraising campaign, helping to plan one of our 101 Seminars or editing student work and website content. Interns help us prepare and run all of our events, and you might even find yourself designing a product or modeling 826 snuggies and other swag. Internships are unpaid and require a commitment of at least 15 hours per week and at least 12-16 weeks.

We have three internship seasons.
