Volunteer to Inspire Crown Heights Students to Love Reading

Become a volunteer with Behind the Book, a non-profit literacy organization that inspires New York City public school students to love reading. Through our innovative programs, accomplished authors lead workshops in high-needs pre-K-12 classrooms, where they guide students in creating their own writing and art projects based on the theme of the author's book.

You need no experience or training to volunteer as a writing, research or art coach. You'll engage and encourage students as they work on their classroom projects. To sign up, please contact volunteer@behindthebook.org with the program code(s) and workshop date(s) you'd like to join.
