826CHI Data Systems Associate
This position is part of the 826 National Network VISTA Program and is located at 826CHI in Chicago, IL. 826CHI is a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting students ages 6 to 18 with their creative and expository writing skills, and to helping teachers inspire their students to write. Services are structured around our understanding that great leaps in learning can happen with one-on-one attention, and that strong writing skills are fundamental to future success. 826CHI believes all Chicago youth should have equal access to high-quality writing and literary arts education. With that in mind, 826CHI programs serve youth from low-income families, who are English language learners, or who attend under-resourced schools. 826CHI’s programs connect students to caring volunteers throughout the school day, after school, on the weekends, and in the summer. 826CHI's rigorous programs offer both practical skills and a platform for self-expression. They are rooted in the belief that engagement with literary arts is restorative and supports strong relationship building. 826CHI endeavors to provide young people new ways to pursue expanded understanding of the world through writing. 826CHI believes that having the means and space to share one’s ideas is paramount to our development as individuals and our engagement with community, social, and civic issues. With this in mind, the organization aims to bring students from different neighborhoods and backgrounds to the table to share in the creative process of writing as often as possible. VISTA members will have the opportunity to create new systems and enhance current efforts related to volunteer recruitment, training, and retention; support development and marketing activities; and support in-school and on-site programming.
