Behind the Book is a non-profit literacy organization that inspires New York City public school students to explore stories and empower their voices. Through our innovative programs, which are part of the class curricula, accomplished authors visit high-needs pre-K-12 classrooms to guide students in creating their own writing projects.
We're looking for a volunteer photographer to document our team participating in the annual Generosity Brooklyn series 5K run/walk to raise funds to provide books to our classrooms and school libraries, and sponsor students in our programs.
- Sunday, April 29th
- 7:00 - 11:00 AM (end time is flexible)
- Prospect Park, Brooklyn (south side; enter at Prospect Park SW at Machate Circle)
You'd capture runners signing in to receive their bibs and t-shirts; the race begins at 9:00 AM. Then you would document them crossing the finish line and receiving medals (start and finish are in the same general location). There's also a warm-up session led by a pro, and a winners ceremony. We'll also need shots of corporate groups, and some other designated images. A BtB rep will coordinate the details with you.
