Volunteer writing coach for public school literacy workshop

High School for Dual Language & & Asian Studies

350 Grand St.
New York, NY 10002

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.

This workshop needs your help at a high school in downtown Manhattan. To sign up, contact volunteer@behindthebook.org with the program code. We'll supply more information when you're confirmed.

Program DL9PG-L

Tuesday, April 2nd
Time: 8:30 ‑ 10:00 AM (there's a 15-minute orientation before the workshop begins)
Volunteer Role: Writing coach

About the program: To understand how telling your own story is critical to both clarifying and achieving your goals, ninth-graders read Paul Griffin's Ten Mile River, about two homeless friends struggling to separate their identities and envision their futures. Coaches will help students polish their drafts of a personal narrative, inspired by their discussion of the boys' choices, and the consequences of acting on them.

For information on other program dates around the city, please visit our volunteer opportunities page.

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