• Volunteer


    Our troops of dedicated, enthusiastic, and oh-so-smart volunteers are the backbone of our organization.

  • Educators


    Part of 826CHI’s mission is to help teachers inspire their students to write. To accomplish this we have several resources for educators.

  • Donors


    When you make a contribution to 826CHI, you are directly enhancing the education of thousands of Chicago students.

  • Interns


    826CHI would be in a pickle indeed without its many wonderful interns. We welcome interns during the fall and spring semesters, and during the summer.

  • Parents


    Parents and guardians, we are here for
    your students!

  • Students


    Whether you’ve got a fancy for fiction, you’ve got a passion for poetry, or you’ve just got a lot of Social Studies homework, we’re here for you.

  • Community


    If you are part of a non-profit organization that is interested in partnering with 826CHI OR are a community member who knows just the organization that we should be working with, we would love to hear from you.
