Become a Writing Coach This Spring! 


Spaces are still available in WCC's  Berkeley training this Thursday evening
(Jan. 12). It's not too late to register. You can do so on WCC's website
(www.writercoachconnection.org <http://www.writercoachconnection.org/> ) or
by calling Lynn Mueller, 510-524-2319 today.


You can make a difference at Berkeley High in Spring 2012. Register today
for one of our upcoming volunteer trainings and help students develop
writing and thinking skills in their English classes (9th & 10th grade at
CPA, 12th grade at Green Academy).


Working in one-on-one writing conferences with students, WCC volunteers
bring  encouragement and assistance to the difficult task of putting ideas
into words on a page. Students are grateful, teachers supported, and
volunteers find the work incredibly satisfying. Coaches work with students
at all achievement levels and with every student in the class.


The volunteer commitment is only 1-2 hours once or twice a month (Thursday
and Friday).  WCC provides all the training and support you'll need to be an
effective coach. We encourage volunteers of diverse ethnicities, ages, and
walks of life - all are welcome!


To see the complete training schedule in January & February, please go to
www.writercoachconnection.org <http://www.writercoachconnection.org/> . We
also offer four special college trainings for Cal students.


Register today and learn strategies to help teens-including your own-gain
confidence, improve skills and complete assignments. To register:
