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

This field trip needs your help at a school in Crown Heights, Brooklyn. To sign up, contact volunteer@behindthebook.org with the program code.

Program 2411JS-T

Date/Time: Monday, May 13th / 10:00 AM – 1:15 PM (please arrive 15 minutes early for orientation)

About the program: Not Quite Narwhal tells the story of Kelp, who journeys over land and sea to figure out where he belongs, and what it means to be different. Jessie Sima’s sweet, engaging picture book encouraged first-graders to write about how they’re unique, too. Chaperones will accompany the class to Bend and Bloom Studio in Brooklyn to learn some yoga moves.
