This is when the magic starts: when one caring volunteer meets with one middle- or high-school student. For 30 minutes, student and coach are focused entirely on guiding the student to the next step in his or her writing and critical thinking. The uninterrupted, individual attention is invaluable. Volunteers listen and respond to the students’ learning needs. Students get to know and trust the suggestions of a caring adult.
With this gift, you’re helping us take one of many steps toward building a student’s skills. One-on-one conversations are the heart and soul of the WriterCoach Connection program, building the confidence students need to express their ideas in writing.
