Interns commit to 16 hours per week of unpaid work for a minimum of four months. Interns participate in all aspects of 826 Boston programming, support the 826 Boston staff in administrative tasks, outreach projects, and events. Named one of GOOD magazine’s “30 Places We Want to Work,” 826 Boston is a vibrant work environment, bustling with staff, interns, students, and volunteers.
