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-12th-grade classrooms to guide students in creating their own writing projects.

You need no experience or training. 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 Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn. To sign up, contact volunteer@behindthebook.org with the program code.

Program 212JO-C

Date/Time: Friday, May 10th from 9:00 – 10:00 AM (please arrive 15 minutes early for orientation)

About the program: Second-graders read Jessica Olien’s Right Now, a picture book about being present and loving who you are. To complement a school-wide initiative, students will explore their individuality, respect, and self-love as prerequisites to being a community leader. They’ll work with writing coaches to detail what makes them special, as well as how to celebrate their individuality and meet their own needs.
