Empower students through writing.

Volunteers are essential to our work. By supporting students during the writing process, volunteers help them to become powerful thinkers, problem solvers, and communicators. Our volunteers are writers, educators, journalists, and community members—and every single one is passionate about young people.

Writing Tutor – Boston International High School

Tutor high school students in writing. Volunteers should enjoy working with teenagers and have solid writing skills. We write in all subject areas, and individuals with education, creative writing, journalism, or communications/marketing experience are especially encouraged to apply, as well as those with less formal writing backgrounds. We strive to create a diverse staff. Experience tutoring or teaching is not necessary; all volunteers will receive training. This is a school year volunteer position. Learn about the Writing Center.
