I am absolutely floored by the work 826CHI does for the community. And the way they do it. Barely out of adolescence and childhood myself, I understand how difficult it is to keep a child's attention and make something interesting. 826 does this, and executes it to perfection. I've only ever been a part of their field trips, but even those are very productive and amazing. My experience this past Friday showed me how enthusiastic and engaged they get the children, and how the energy you give, you get back in tenfold. The staff here is so sweet and always willing to help you out in a bind. And the interns here are great with kids! Watching them work always astounds me, because I'm shocked that they can get to 826 by 9:30 in the morning and suddenly charge it up for the kids!
