We believe that critical thinking and clear writing skills are essential for a young person to succeed in school and beyond. With that in mind, WriterCoach Connection sends rigorously trained volunteer coaches into East Bay classrooms and after-school programs to engage, encourage and inspire students to develop fundamental skills that will prepare them for productive and meaningful lives.
"WriterCoach Connection works. Student writing achievement goes up, teachers get much-needed relief
with the extra individual attention to students, and community members bond with their schools.
Everyone wins, and we need more of it."
—Dr. Bruce Harter, Supt. West Contra Costa Unified School District
(Dr. Harter has since retired from his position as Superintendent but has joined WriterCoach Connection as a volunteer coach!)
