Description

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 writing or research coach, field trip chaperone, you'll support and encourage small groups of students as they work on their projects.


Individual workshops run an average of 90 minutes on a school day, usually in the morning. Field trips are about 3 hours, including travel time to and from the location. You can volunteer for any number of workshops in any number of programs, which are scheduled over a few weeks.


Our full slate of programs launches every fall at schools in Brooklyn, lower Manhattan, Harlem, Washington Heights, Inwood, and the Bronx, We'll also offer a small number of summer school programs.
