Volunteer Opportunities

Summer 2018 Volunteer Opportunities

We’re always looking for volunteers to join the team for our free writing summer camps. These workshops—in a variety of different genres—are typically Monday through Friday for three hours a day. We work one-on-one with students on developing their creative and expository writing skills. Don’t worry if you’ve never taught or written a lesson plan before. We’ll help you with that! Our students benefit from our volunteers’ passionate mentorship and individual feedback. Take a look at our opportunities below and let us know if you have any questions!
