I've had a great experience in my 2+ years' volunteering for the Washington, DC branch of 826. I was able to begin when the branch first opened in 2010 and have been coming in once or twice a month ever since to work with students in the after school tutoring program. The staff is very welcoming and personable and the kids always amaze me with their creativity. It has been great seeing how far the students have come in such a short period of time. I've also enjoyed seeing the impact 826DC has made in the larger literary and non-profit community of DC. Everywhere I go in the area I find people who have heard about 826DC and the good work they are doing through their after school tutoring sessions, in-house field trips, and outreach efforts to local elementary schools. It's hard to imagine the city without them!
