Writing coach for Harlem, NYC public school literacy progam (RM-G)

Volunteer with Behind the Book, a non-profit literacy organization that inspires New York City public school students to love reading. Through our rich, innovative programs, which are part of the class curricula, accomplished authors visit high-needs Pre-K-12th-grade classrooms to guide students in creating their own writing projects based on the theme of the author's book.

No experience is necessary. We provide advance information on your role, and hold a brief orientation right before a workshop begins. As a coach, you'll support and encourage students as they work on their projects.

This writing workshop needs your help at a school in Harlem, NYC. To sign up, contact volunteer@behindthebook.org with program code 15434RM-G. We'll supply more information when you're confirmed.

Date/Time: Thursday, December 19th / 10:00 - 11:30 AM (please arrive 15-20 minutes early for orientation)

About the workshop: Third- and fourth-graders will read Slithery Snakes by Roxie Munro, a look at the anatomy and habitats of these, and other, creepy creatures. After researching a reptile of their choice, they’ll work with writing coaches to polish an explanatory piece about it, including why they think that reptile would make a great pet.

To receive announcements of new programs as they're scheduled, please complete our brief questionnaire.
