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 visit 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.
No experience or training is necessary to work with students. As a writing, research or art coach, you'll engage them and encourage their progress on their projects.
This program needs your support as a writing coach in Crown Heights next week. To sign up, contact firstname.lastname@example.org with the program code:

About the program:
To delve into conflict resolution, friendship, and life in the Arctic, kindergartners read Virgil & Owen
, Paulette Bogan’s story of a penguin who befriends a lost polar bear. Writing coaches will work with small groups as they edit their reports on an animal from the region.
