Writing Coach for Bronx, NYC public school literacy program (MB-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.

These two writing workshops need your support at a school in the Bronx, NYC. To sign up, contact volunteer@behindthebook.org with program code BAL7MB-M. We'll provide more information when you're confirmed.

Date/Times: Wednesday, March 4th / 2 classes (choose one or both) : 10:15 - 11:30 AM and/or 12:55 - 2:15 PM (brief orientation precedes each session)

About the workshop: Two seventh-grade classes will read The Long Ride by Marina Budhos , a story set in 1970’s New York of three friends moved by forces beyond their control when they’re included in an experiment to integrate a new school. Students will discuss issues of segregation, desegregation, integration, and the historic Supreme Court decisions that shaped those policies. Coaches will help them edit argumentative essays on the topic.

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