826 Boston is a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting students ages 6 to 18 with their creative and expository writing skills, and to helping teachers inspire their students to write.
Each of our free programs seeks to strengthen each student’s power to express ideas effectively, creatively, confidently, and in his or her individual voice.
We're looking for Actors for 826 Boston's Storytelling & Bookmaking Field Trips. Field trips are the chance for entire classes to come to our writing center for a few hours of high-energy learning.
One of our most popular field trips is Storytelling & Bookmaking, designed for grades 1-4, in which a class creates, illustrates, and publishes a tale like "Bud, the Grumpy Earthquake" all in one morning! Each student then leaves with his or her own published book.
We need Actors to help facilitate and lead Field Trips and engage students in a storytelling activity! Roles include the following who work in our "research lab" for cryptozoology:
- Our Lead Storyteller
- The Cranky Publisher
- The Overenthusiastix Photographer
- The Timid Typists
- Reading / Writing
- Youth Services
