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 program needs your help in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn. To sign up, contact volunteer@behindthebook.org with the program code. We'll provide the address, directions, and other information when you're confirmed:
