Looking for an opportunity to volunteer at BHS? WriterCoach Connection (WCC)
is a rewarding experience working one-on-one with students at every level of
writing ability on their writing assignments. In partnership with teachers,
trained writer coaches help students strengthen their writing and thinking
skills by giving them constructive feedback, challenging them to think more
deeply, and building their confidence as writers. The time commitment is
only 1-2 hours, usually twice per month, during the school day, beginning in
October. This year we're coaching 9th and 10th graders in AMPS; 9th graders
in CAS; and 11th graders in Green Academy!


Coaching is fun and rewarding -  "This is the best volunteer experience I
have ever had. I feel like I am really being helpful," says one coach.


You don't need to be a writer or teacher - WCC coaches are parents, college
students, working and retired people of all backgrounds, ethnicities, and
ages. Our in-depth training will give you strategies and practice to work
effectively with students, including your own. If you can't coach, please
tell a friend or neighbor who might be interested.


Training sessions are beginning in September. For the complete training
schedule or more information, go to www.writercoachconnection.org

site coordinators Sahib-Amar Khalsa (sakk at mindspring.com) or Jeanne Schuman
(schumanj4 at gmail.com).
