  Job Description

Behind the Book is a non-profit children's literacy organization that inspires New York City public school students to love reading.


We bring accomplished authors into high-needs pre-K-12th grade classrooms, where they guide students in creating their own writing and art projects based on the theme of the author's book. Our rich, innovative programs, which are part of the class curricula and meet Common Core Learning Standards, have a successful record of building literacy skills and creating engaged, motivated readers at schools around the city.


You need no experience or training to be a classroom volunteer. As a writing, research or art coach, and in other active roles, you'll engage, encourage and support students as they complete their creative projects. Working with small groups, you might help them edit a short story or essay, research a topic online, create a collage or craft, or accompany a class on a field trip.

Each classroom workshop runs about 90 minutes on a school day, usually in the morning. A program series may run three to six workshops, scheduled over a few weeks, but you can volunteer for any number in a program.
