Ever wonder how 826CHI publishes dozens of books, serves thousands of students, and works with more than a hundred schools in a year? The secret is in our dedicated and enthusiastic intern cohorts––now including two high school fellows!

We want to thank our summer 2017 interns, Camilla Chee, Mercury Rivera, Emma Kupor, Emily Duong, Shay McIntosh, Ariel Robinson, Jazmine Rodriguez, Mahalia Sobhani, Ivan Catudan, and Alexandra Lorez Boone, for a summer full of fun, learning, and creativity.

Know someone who'd like to join their ranks? We're still accepting Fall internship applications until Monday, July 31st. Benefits include a transportation stipend, a 20% discount in the Secret Agent Supply Co., and hands-on experience working with our students and our staff of nonprofit professionals.

“Playing on an “international spy” theme, the center features Morse-coded library shelves and murals that urge the students to “journey in their minds to exotic locations like Paris or Marrakesh, where spies might travel.”

Ever wonder who designed our beautiful, creativity-inspiring writing lab? We have the generous people at Gensler to thank for our space and the labs at sister chapters 826 Valencia and 826 Michigan. To read more and see photos of these innovative spaces, check out dialogue by Gensler.
