Join us for a week of exciting and educational events showcasing the artists, designers, musicians, filmmakers, authors, fashion and beauty changemakers who are lighting up our screens and airwaves to shift our consciousness and conversations for good.
WriterCoach Connection is very excited that we will be offering our online coaching program for the first time to 177 seventh graders at Pinole Middle School this spring. We invite members of the Contra Costa community to join us to:
Help students build critical thinking skills through writing and amplify their authentic voices
Work directly with students on their writing assignments; you'll work with two students in 45-minutes coaching sessions
Make a difference this year for Pinole students; the program runs April through May for six weeks
We provide all the training you need to be a great coach!
This program will run on Mondays and Thursdays during the school day via Zoom. We ask for a commitment of 1.5 or 2.5 hours once a week for the six weeks the program is running.
We are hoping to have at least 60 people join us from the greater Pinole and Contra Costa County community in the next 30 days so we can make this great program happen this year and in future years!
Sign up for a 30-minute online orientation with us to learn more about becoming a coach today and make a difference in a young person’s life!

WriterCoach Connection connects trained, caring volunteer coaches with middle and high school students to engage, encourage and inspire them to think more critically and write more skillfully. Our vision is that all students discover the power and richness of their own voices and learn to communicate their ideas with clarity and confidence to enable them to participate successfully in personal and academic challenges, career options and community conversations.
Our core program is a robust in-school academic support program in which coaches work one-on-one and in small groups with each and every student in the classroom, in support of teachers’ writing assignments. Additionally, in response to stated needs by educators and students, coaches in our college and career readiness program module work in classroom settings and after-school programs on senior personal statements, early assessment test preparation. and other crucial college readiness projects.
WriterCoach Connection offers a cost-effective and significantly impactful investment, helping students master crucial literacy skills while fostering social-emotional connections between students and their coaches and preparing the young people for a bright and fulfilling future.
