Writing coach for Washington Heights, NYC public school literacy program (CB-M)

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. Groups up to 10 welcome.

This writing workshop needs your help at a school in Washington Heights, NYC. To sign up, contact volunteer@behindthebook.org with program code 4123CB-M. We'll supply more information when you're confirmed. Groups up to 10 welcome.

Date/Time: Thursday, March 19th / 11:30 AM – 12:30 PM (please arrive 15-20 minutes early for orientation)

About the workshop: A combined first-, second-, and third-grade class read Marlo by Christopher Browne, about a dog who overcomes his dislike of baths by imagining tub time as an incredible underwater adventure. Students will consider an unwelcome event or something they dislike doing, and with the help of coaches, polish their written drafts that tell how they’ll transform that negative experience into a positive one.

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