826 Valencia Volunteer Engagement Associate
This position is part of the 826 National Network VISTA Program and is located at 826 Valencia in San Francisco, CA. 826 Valencia is a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting under-resourced students ages six to eighteen with their creative and expository writing skills and to helping teachers inspire their students to write. Our services are structured around the understanding that great leaps in learning can happen with one-on-one attention and that strong writing skills are fundamental to future success. The organization's main goals are to close the academic achievement gap for under-served youth in the Bay Area, provide the tools and resources necessary for success in school and beyond, connect caring adults to young people in need of individualized support, and make the path to college and career less of a leap. With this in mind, 826 Valencia offers a range of programs, all free of charge, for students, classrooms, and schools in the Bay Area. The project-based approach allows students ownership over the writing process and strengthens their ability to express themselves clearly and in their own voice. By making writing fun, by demystifying the process, and by creating gorgeous books, magazines, and newspapers that honor their work, 826 Valencia inspires young people to gain critical skills and write with confidence.
