Volunteer with Behind the Book, a non-profit literacy organization that inspires public school students to love reading. Through our programs, accomplished authors visit high-needs pre-K-12 classrooms to guide students in creating their own writing projects.
No experience or training is needed. You'll engage and encourage small groups of students as they polish their writing.
This workshop in Mott Haven needs your help. To sign up, contact firstname.lastname@example.org with the program code and time slot(s) you choose. We'll provide the address and other information.
Program code: IC12DPP-C
Wednesday, March 28th - 9:00 ? 11:00 AM (2 consecutive classes). You can also sign up for a third class from 2:50 ? 3:50 PM.
Overview: Three 12th-grade classes read Dan-el Padilla Peralta?s "Undocumented: A Dominican Boy?s Odyssey from a Homeless Shelter to the Ivy League," a memoir of his journey from homelessness to the top of his class at Princeton. Students wrote about how you can stake a claim to the American Dream if people don?t think you belong here. Writing coaches will work with small groups as they polish their drafts.
