Volunteer opportunity description

826NYC hosts workshops for its students on a variety of subjects. If you have expertise in a field that involves writing, and some background working with young people, you might be a fit to teach or support an evening (6:00-8:00pm) or Sunday (12:00-2:00pm) workshop. The topics range from SAT-prep to jazz poetry to science writing to writing an entire novel in a month. Whatever your area of interest, our staff will work with you to perfect your curriculum and execute your workshop. Just want to support a workshop? No problem. Most of our workshops require 2-4 volunteers to help assist with activities.

About 826NYC:

826NYC is a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting students ages 6-18 with their creative and expository writing skills, and to helping teachers inspire their students to write. Our services are structured around our belief that great leaps in learning can happen with one-on-one attention and that strong writing skills are fundamental to future success. With this in mind we provide drop-in tutoring, field trips, after-school workshops, in-schools tutoring, help for English language learners, and assistance with student publications. All of our free programs are challenging and enjoyable, and ultimately strengthen each student's power to express ideas effectively, creatively, confidently, and in his or her individual voice.
