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, you'll engage them and encourage their progress
on a project.
This workshop needs your support at a public school in Bed-Stuy. To sign
up, contact email@example.com
with the program code. We'll
supply the school address, directions, and other information when you're

About the workshop:
Zetta Elliott's powerful story Bird
about a boy who learns that his love for drawing is a way to process the
challenges his family faces from his brother's addiction, inspired
sixth-graders to write a poem about how they've overcome obstacles.
Writing coaches will guide students in reaching their final drafts.
