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

You need no experience or training to volunteer. As a coach, you'll support and encourage students as they work on their projects.

This workshop needs your help in Washington Heights, NYC. To sign up, contact with the program code. We'll supply the address, directions, and other information when you're confirmed:

Volunteer Role: Art Coach

About the program: With Marthe Jocelyn’s Sam Sorts, a picture book that takes a fun look at counting and categories, this combined class of kindergarten, first- and second-grade students is learning about organizing through observation. After meeting with the author, students created mixed-media collages. Volunteers will help them capture images around their school to include in their artwork.
