Volunteer for Behind the Book and help inspire NYC public school students to become readers for life. We bring accomplished authors and their books into high-need
classrooms, where they teach students how to write and illustrate their very own books. Our programs build literacy skills and nurture a new generation of readers in grades K-12 at schools throughout the city.
As a classroom volunteer, you’ll coach and support students as they craft stories and create artwork for their unique classroom project. Just a few hours a month is all it takes to be part of a program that has lasting impact for students in our underserved communities. No previous experience necessary.
