  Literacy Volunteer for New York City Public School Students Job viewed 339 times.
  Job Description

Join the volunteer team at Behind the Book, a non-profit literacy organization that inspires New York City public school students to love reading.

We bring accomplished authors into 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. Our rich, innovative programs have a successful record of building literacy skills and motivating engaged readers at schools around the city.

You need no experience or training to volunteer as a writing, research or art coach in the classroom. Working with small groups of students, you might guide them as they edit a short story or essay, research a topic, or create artwork to illustrate their writing. 

Individual workshops run one to two hours on a school day, usually in the morning. You can volunteer for any number of workshops in a program, which are scheduled over a few weeks. With an impressive slate of authors leading creative, thought-provoking programs every year, you'll find many programs you'll want to be a part of.

To sign up for current program dates, please visit our volunteer opportunities page.

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