Writing coach for Bronx NYC public school literacy program (GN-R)

Volunteer with Behind the Book, a non-profit literacy organization that inspires New York City public school students to love reading. Through our rich, 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 based on the theme of the author's book.

No experience is necessary. We provide advance information on your role, and hold a brief orientation right before a workshop begins. 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, NYC. To sign up, contact volunteer@behindthebook.org with program code 2237GN-R. We'll supply more information when you're confirmed.

Date/Time: Wednesday, January 8th / 12:45 - 1:45 PM (please arrive 15-20 minutes early for orientation)

About the workshops: To study the US criminal justice system and how it supports youth offenders, seventh-graders will read Greg Neri's Yummy: The Last Days of a Southside Shorty, a graphic novel that explores a true story of gang life. Students will work with coaches to polish argumentative essays responding to whether the title character--an 11-year-old boy--is a killer or a victim.

To receive announcements of new programs as they're scheduled, please complete our brief questionnaire.
