In Schools Workshop Partnership Request Form
Thanks for your interest in a partnership with 826CHI! In your request, please describe how 826CHI could enhance a writing project in your school to bring a writing workshop or writing support to your students. Requests will be reviewed on a rolling basis. Due to high demand and limited capacity, we can only take on a few school partnerships per season. However, we encourage you to apply regardless and we'll keep you in mind for future projects. If you have any questions, please contact

Our registration approach supports our mission of expanding arts access and equity across the city of Chicago.

The 826CHI team will carefully evaluate each application and select schools that align with our priority enrollment criteria, which prioritizes schools with a high BIPOC population, low number of existing arts partnerships, as well as classes with low-proficiency English Language Learners and students from limited-income families.
