Volunteers are at the core of how we serve students. You don’t need to be an expert writer. You do need a deep belief in the students we serve and an eagerness to learn together. The majority of our students are youth of color, and we especially seek volunteers who identify as Black, Indigenous, or People of Color.


GetLet's Started

While students are distance-learning due to COVID-19, we have pivoted all of our programs online to deliver our unique model of writing support and  tutoring remotely. While the tools are new, the goal is the same: to build skills, confidence, and pride, and to amplify their voices for the world to hear. And on the plus side, you can now tutor without braving BART at rush hour.
