Long Term Opportunity
You must be at least 18 to volunteer.

You need no experience or training to volunteer as a writing, research or art coach to support students in pre-K-12th grade classrooms in the Bronx.

Working with small groups, you might guide them as they edit a short story or essay, research a topic such as an animal or historical event, or create artwork to illustrate their writing. You might also accompany a class on a field trip to a museum or urban garden.

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.

Individual workshops run 1-2 hours on a school day, usually in the morning. You may volunteer for any number of dates in a program series, which are scheduled over a few weeks.
