Writing education is a community effort
826DC’s interns, team members, donors, volunteers, and community advocates all work together to make high-quality writing experiences accessible to every DC student.
Work With Us
Help young people forge a relationship with writing
In addition to our full-time staff, 826DC relies on talented volunteers and interns to make our work possible. If you’re passionate about writing education, we want to hear from you.
Invest in 826DC’s mission
Individual donors help keep our lights on and our pages turning. Consider a gift of any amount to help us inspire young people to write.
Spread the word
Even if you don’t have time to volunteer, you can advocate for 826DC by joining our ambassador program. Ambassadors are some of the first people we email when we need help promoting an event, fundraiser, or special project. It’s a low-pressure, low-commitment way to support 826DC from anywhere.
