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 rich, innovative programs, which are taught as part of the class curricula, accomplished authors visit high-needs pre-K-12th-grade classrooms to guide students in creating their own writing and art projects.
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 creative projects.
