826DC provides academic support and arts education to underserved children in the District of Columbia through creative writing workshops and field trips, afterschool tutoring, literacy support, and student publishing opportunities. Our services are structured around our belief that great leaps in learning can happen with one-on-one attention and that strong writing skills are fundamental to future success.

The Graphic Design Intern will work closely with 826DC’s Director of Development and Programs Director to create event and marketing materials, student publications, flyers, newsletters, and more. By the end of the internship, designers will have gained skills in both design and navigating a professional environment, and insight into nonprofit and publishing environments.
