Review for 826 Valencia, San Francisco, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I love 826 Valencia! What a fun place to work or simply to visit (the pirate store). I interned at 826 this past summer, and felt that everyone was completely warm and generous and above all overly thankful to have me and the rest of the volunteers there. This organization truly cares about its mission, to create better futures for children, to publish them, and do it with a sense of humor. They are very flexible in terms of scheduling volunteers and would always welcome your support.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

their scholarships and the thankfulness of the students they teach.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

hire more people.

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

the fun people who work there and the wonderful children.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

All great people, all kind and enthusiastic.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

buy ten mcdonalds.

Ways to make it better...

I had more time there.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

lack of volunteers, Volunteer!

One thing I'd also say is that...

826 is like a drug, the kids and staff are so cool, you become attached.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

2008

Role:  Volunteer & intern, working with ELL and various other things.
