Behind the Book needs interested YPG Cares volunteers to help out in their program, which serves one classroom through an average of four workshops over the course of two months. Standard BtB sessions include a curriculum guide and lesson plan for the teacher to follow and a copy of the author’s book for each child. The workshops consist of an introductory visit where the Behind the Book coordinator explains the program and delivers materials for the class, followed by a series of author-led workshops where students learn and develop their writing and critical thinking skills.

Behind the Book’s (BtB) mission is to inspire New York City public school students to love reading by bringing accomplished authors and their books into classrooms and creating rich, innovative literacy programs. Behind the Book fosters a life-long love of reading and learning. Their programs are part of the class curricula and are aligned with the Common Core Learning Standards.
