Special Events

We’re looking for creative and highly-skilled volunteers to help create memorable fundraising, donor stewardship and appreciation events. Your work will make a lasting impact on 826LA and our students.

The Special Events Committee assists in the planning, execution, and post production follow-up of high-impact 826LA events. Duties such as promoting the events, finding volunteers, set-up and break-down, assisting with participation, etc., are all ways the Special Events Committee supports 826LA.  

The Committee meets 4-6 times a year and will alternate between the Echo Park and Mar Vista centers. Depending on the events at hand, subcommittees may meet weekly or on a bi-monthly basis to further our event planning activities.

826LA events are known for being imaginative and humorous, and always in service of an important cause!

Sign up here to join the Special Events Committee.
