Beacon is taking its popular creative writing program into the classroom at Hackett Elementary. Join us on Tuesdays from 9:30-11:30am for the opportunity to empower first graders to express themselves with words and images. We'll be working in pairs of volunteers, helping groups of 5 children at a time to generate and fulfill creative writing prompts that are silly, imaginative, fun, and/or reflective. No special writing skills needed--just a willingness to encourage children as they find their voice in the written word.

Weekly, biweekly, and monthly opportunities available.
