Virtual Teacher [Creative Writing/Poetry]
Edgewood Center for Children and Families
Edgewood offers innovative mental health, family support, and education services that provide vital assistance to at-risk youth and families in the San Francisco Bay Area.
Edgewood is looking for folks who have enthusiasm, a passion for working with youth and a skill to share.
In this case, we are looking for an individual(s) interested in acting as a Creative Writing/Poetry Teacher for youth (12-17) in our residentially-based programs.
As a volunteer, you will be asked to lead a creative writing/poetry class for a small group (3-6) of youth in partnership with Edgewood's counseling staff. While you do not need professional training, it would be helpful for you to have direct experience or some form(s) of training and/or knowledge in a variety of writing styles and would love someone with an interest in narrative therapy/story telling.
If this sparks your interest, please complete our online interest form.
