Writing Coach for Washington Heights public school literacy program (KB-B2)

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 welcome.

This writing workshop needs your help at a school in Washington Heights, NYC. To sign up, contact volunteer@behindthebook.org with program code 45KB-B. We'll supply more information when you're confirmed.

Date/Time: Thursday, March 19th / 12:30 - 2:30 PM (15-minute orientation begins at 12:30 PM)

About the workshop: Fifth-graders read Birth of the Cool: How Jazz Great Miles Davis Found His Sound, Kathleen Cornell Berman’s free verse biography documenting Davis’ journey from childhood to the Newport Jazz Festival. Coaches will help students polish their own free verse about inspirations that will help them reach a goal. *You can also sign up to be a research coach for this program on Tuesday, March 3rd from 12:30 - 2:30 PM to help students find facts about jazz’s origins, evolution, and contribution to our culture.

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