Review for 826 Valencia, San Francisco, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I am a summer intern at 826, and I have loved every minute of my experience here. I came in not knowing what to expect, but after meeting the wonderful, exuberant staff and getting involved in the incredible community programs, I regret only that I didn't have more time to give. What amazes me is the simultaneous breadth and depth of 826 programs. This summer, I have helped out with a program for elementary school students struggling with reading and writing in English and an intensive summer writing camp for serious, high school age creative writers. If there is an opportunity to help students enhance their writing skills, the staff and volunteers of 826 will take it on and be endlessly dedicated.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

working with children and meeting some of the most interesting, dedicated people I've ever known.

Ways to make it better...

I had had more time to spend here!
