Help kids in high-need public schools become lifelong readers. Behindthe Book is a non-profit organization that brings accomplished authors into classrooms to guide students in creating their own writing and art projects. Our programs, which are part of the class curricula, have a successful record of building literacy skills and motivating students to read.
No experience or training is necessary to volunteer. You'll coach and encourage students as they write, research, and create artwork.
You can help kids as they work with author Steven Metzger (Program 241SM11) on a study of the planets, learn about urban birds with author Barbara Bash (Program 241BB11), and examine human rights law with author Selina Alko (Program 241SA12).
