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. This year we're coaching 9th and 
10th graders in AMPS; 9th graders in CAS;.....and, new this year, 10th 
graders in AHA!

Coaching is fun and rewarding --- "The highlight of my week," says one 

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 are unable to coach right now, please tell a friend or neighbor who 
might be interested.
