Company/Individual Name: Behind the Book
Business Description: Behind the Book’s mission is to motivate young people to become engaged readers by connecting them to contemporary writers and illustrators. We bring authors and their books into individual classrooms to build literacy skills, and create a community of life-long readers and writers. Our programs take place in NYC’s underserved public schools, are part of the class curricula and meet the Common Core Standards. We believe that every student deserves the freedom that comes from the ability to read and think independently.
In the midst of shrinking education budgets, Behind the Book (BtB) offers NYC students a refreshingly creative and empowering experience. Working with classes from Kindergarten through 12th grade, Behind the Book collaborates with each teacher to select a book and develop a curriculum unit that meets the specific needs of their class. We then bring in the author of the chosen book to teach a series of workshops that engage and inspire students and culminate in the publication of a writing project, such as an illustrated book, a school newspaper, or a short story anthology. Our innovative programs address the urgent need to engage children and youth with reading and writing as a first step towards life-long literacy.
Position Available: Student Book Graphic Designer
Job Duties/Responsibilities: Behind the Book is looking for volunteers to design and format the books produced by our students after working with our published authors.
Each project takes about 25 hours of time for a designer, spread over two or three weeks. Because we’re nearing the end of the school year, we need someone who is able to start right away.
While the volunteer can work from home, it is preferable that he/she live in or very near New York City. The volunteer will need to be proficient in InDesign. This opportunity is perfect for someone who has a passion for education and literacy, but also an eye for design and skill with computers.
