Volunteer with 826 Valencia’s Creative Team!

Please note that all of the below fields are required. After successfully submitting your creative volunteer application form, you should automatically receive an email from us confirming we’ve received your application. If you don't receive this email, or you experience any trouble completing this form, please reach out to our Design Director, Brad Amorosino at brad@826valencia.org.


We work with creative volunteers on a per project basis. When we have a project, such as a publication, brochure, poster, event branding and collateral, or store product, we review applicants’ portfolios and reach out to volunteers that would be a goof fit for the project. Most creative volunteers work remotely. Photographers do work with us on-site at scheduled photo shoots during programming hours in our Mission and Tenderloin centers and at our in-schools locations.

And now, in small font, some words of great importance!
Although not required of creative volunteers, if I choose to volunteer in a tutoring capacity with students, I give permission for 826 Valencia to conduct a background check on me, which may include a review of sex offender registries, child abuse, and criminal activity records. I understand that, if appointed, my position is conditional upon the staff at 826 receiving no inappropriate information on my background. I hereby release and agree to hold harmless from liability to 826 Valencia, the employees and volunteers thereof, or any person or organization that may provide such information.

I hereby grant to 826 Valencia, and its authorized agents, vendors, officers, directors, employees, licensees, affiliates, successors, and assigns the non-exclusive, irrevocable, perpetual, world-wide right and license to use, reproduce, display, perform, edit, create derivative works of, and distribute, in whole or in part, any photographs and/or recordings taken by me during activities sponsored by 826 Valencia, for any purpose, in any and all manner or media now known or hereinafter developed.

I acknowledge that I also understand that 826 Valencia appreciates me and my enthusiasm, but I also acknowledge that 826 Valencia is not obligated to appoint me to a volunteer position.
