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 research workshop needs your help at a school in Washington Heights, NYC. To sign up, contact volunteer@behindthebook.org with program code 44RC-24

Date/Time: Wednesday, July 24th / 9:00 – 10:30 AM (please arrive 20 minutes early for orientation)

About the program: Based on Sea Creatures from the Sky, his lively story about a shark’s first encounter with scientists, Ricardo Cortés will talk with fourth-graders about writing a point-of-view narrative told by a sea creature. Students will work with coaches to research a sea creature they chose.
