Writing Coach Program

The Writing Coach Program, also known as 8th Grade Academy (8GA), pairs a student writing coach with an 8th grade student from Orchard Gardens Middle School. As a writing coach, you help improve students’ persuasive essay writing skills and help prepare them for high school and their longer term goals. In fact, Citizen Schools impact results show that their participating students have a 20% higher graduation rate.

When: Every other Tuesday from 3:00 – 4:30 p.m. Dates: 1/17, 1/31, 2/14, 2/28, 3/14, 3/28, 4/11, 4/25.

Where: TBA

Seeking: 20-25 volunteer coaches

What our students are saying:

 “Working with the middle school has been great in allowing me to continue my work in the field of community development.  Helping students start their own businesses and use the profits to invest in social causes, like a micro loan for an entrepreneur in a developing country, gave the students an opportunity to learn about business and entrepreneurship at key stage in their academic development.”
