Volunteer Donate


We’re always looking for creative and highly-skilled volunteers to work behind-the-scenes. You can volunteer in the below areas on a per-project basis, and your work will make a lasting impact on 826 Valencia and our students.

Design, Illustration & Photography

We need experienced creative professionals to help with publications, window displays, illustrations, and professional photographers to document our events and programming. To volunteer your design, illustration, or photography skills, please email Design Director Brad Amorosino at brad@826valencia.org. To volunteer to create a window display for our stores, please email Stores Manager Byron Weiss at byron@826valencia.org. Be sure to include your résumé and a link to your portfolio.

Editing & Translation

We take our students’ writing seriously, so we give it the full treatment of professional publishing. We need our major publications to pass through the eyes of professional copy editors before hitting the presses! To volunteer as a copy editor or translator, please email Design Director Brad Amorosino at brad@826valencia.org.

Audio Editing

We record over 80 students per week in our professional sound booths, and need volunteers to help us edit these incredible stories! Our audio volunteers can work remotely to do basic edits to the students’ recordings so they can be published on SoundCloud. If you’re interested in supporting this project, please send a description of your audio experience to Programs Associate Ricardo Cruz at ricardo@826valencia.org. You can also check out our podcasts here.
