WriterCoach Connection encourages parents, college students, working and retired people of all ages, backgrounds, genders, and ethnicities to join our team of valued volunteers. Coaching happens in classrooms during the school day. If you have the flexibility in your schedule to volunteer during the daytime for two to four sessions per month, please sign here for an orientation to learn more!
Everyone must attend an orientation meeting prior to participating in one of our trainings. Our trainings provide the strategies and practice you'll need to be a terrific coach. Additionally, as part of becoming a coach, you will have to go through a fingerprinting and background check process in order to be allowed to coach in the schools. We make this process as easy as possible for volunteers (e.g., fingerprinting can be done during your training session).
Orientations will be held at our offices in Oakland and at selected sites as noted below.
If you are already coaching with us, you do not need to attend an orientation.
