Event description

Description

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.

No experience or training is necessary to volunteer as a writing, research or art coach in the classroom. You'll support, engage, and encourage students as they work on their projects.

This writing workshop needs your support in Harlem. To sign up, contact volunteer@behindthebook.org with the program code and date(s). We'll supply the address, directions, and other information when you're confirmed:

Program 1253SV-M

Monday, December 18th, 2017 from 10:30 AM – Noon

About the program: Third-graders read Susan Verde’s The Water Princess, about a girl in Burkina Faso who walks a long way to bring her family water. Students will learn why it’s difficult to get water there, and how to conserve it here, and how water is collected and prepared for use. Writing coaches will help them write about the topic.

To find more Behind the Book program dates, visit our volunteer opportunities page.

To join our team and receive announcements of new volunteer opportunities as they're posted, please complete our brief questionnaire.
