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 the Bronx. To sign up, contact volunteer@behindthebook.org with the program code and date/time.
