Young Writers Program: Volunteer Opportunity!
December 11, 2018 @ 1:34 am$25.00
Young Writers Program are currently in their 7th year of supporting students and teachers across the county in building students’ writing skills and confidence. Our wonderful volunteers serve as Writing Project Assistants (WPAs) in local classrooms and dedicate one hour, two days a week, to supporting groups of 3 to 5 students on developing a piece of writing.
Volunteers are needed for the Brook Knoll Elementary Writing Project! Here’s the details:
Students: 4th Grade
Meeting Days/ Times: Thursdays and Fridays from 11am to 12pm
Dates: Jan. 17 to Feb. 22
Sign up to volunteer by December 22! Please email [email protected] or call (831)466-5829 to volunteer.
Please note, all volunteers need to be fingerprinted and TB tested prior to their involvement in the classroom.
With the help of volunteers, we’re able to empower young people to share their stories, improve their writing skills, and revise with an audience in mind. At the conclusion of each project, we professionally edit and publish the students’ pieces of writing, presenting each participant with a free copy of the publication. Books are then available to the public at local bookstores.
