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.

"Being an intern at 826 National gives you a valuable opportunity to work for something bigger than yourself, and to see the value in the work that goes on behind the scenes of a nonprofit."- Janette Krulick, 826 National Intern

At 826 National our interns are an important part of our team, helping to support staff with national initiatives that keep our seven 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 for the online store. Up for the challenge? Great, we’d love to hear from you.
