Website 826 Valencia
826 Valencia is an education nonprofit organization.
826 Valencia provides free writing, tutoring, and publishing programs to thousands of students from under-resourced communities in San Francisco each year-and we need you to help make the magic happen. While students are distanced-learning and sheltered- in-place, we have pivoted all of our programs online to deliver our unique model of writing support and individualized tutoring remotely.
We need volunteers to make this possible! You don’t have to be an expert writer or editor, but you do have to have some reliable free time in your schedule to tutor remotely, a deep commitment to the students we serve, and a willingness to learn alongside each other and our students. The majority of our students are youth of color, and we are especially seeking volunteers committed to anti-racist work and/or who identify as Black, Indigenous, or People of Color. We depend upon our energetic, caring tutors to ensure that we have individualized interactions with every student. Plus, working with our student is always a blast!
Please note: All of our programs will be online over Zoom at least through Fall Semester, as our spaces remain closed due to COVID-19 precautions.
Requirements for working with youth:
-Available between the hours of 8:00AM and 6:00PM, Monday through Friday
-16 years of age or older
-Willing to submit to a LiveScan background check
-Able to attend one of our new volunteer orientations
-Excited about supporting the development of young learners!
