Find out more about working and interning with 826 Boston.
826 Boston hires a group of enthusiastic, dedicated, and versatile interns for the fall, spring and summer semesters. Interns will work individually and collectively with each other, our staff and service members, and a large group of volunteers.
Applicants for internships should submit a cover letter, resume and two letters of recommendation to the Volunteer Manager. In lieu of the letters of recommendations, references have the option of submitting our online recommendation form. Please indicate the internship you’re applying for in the subject line.
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.
This is an opportunity to design, write, or teach in a professional environment, work with youth, get experience in creative arts education, learn about the day-to-day operations of a small non-profit, and join the network of national 826 chapters, while building job skills, advancing your resume, and acquiring excellent references. Applicants must be over the age of 18 but need not be currently enrolled in an academic program.
Recruitment for summer internships has begun. We will be accepting applications until our positions are filled. Please email the Volunteer Team with questions about open positions.
