WriterCoach Connection is very excited that we will be offering our online coaching program the full 7th and 8th grade at Pinole Middle School this Fall. 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 this Fall and Spring
  • We provide all the training you need to be a great coach!
  • We ask for a commitment of 1.5 or 2.5 hours once a week for the 10 weeks the program is running.
  • We are hoping to have at least 100 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!

About WriterCoach Connection

Location:

1212 Preservation Park Way, Suite 100, Oakland, CA 94612, US

Mission Statement

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.

Description

WriterCoach Connection was founded in 2001 in Berkeley, CA. We are celebrating our 20th anniversary and have coached over 38,000 students since our founding. Our core program is a equity-focused, in-school academic program (on Zoom during the pandemic) where trained, caring adult coaches work individually and in small groups with each and every student in the classroom, in support of teachers’ writing assignments. We also have an after-school program collaboration where our coaches provide college essay coaching with a track record of 98% of students getting into a four year college/university.

WriterCoach Connection offers a cost-effective and significantly impactful program, helping students master crucial life skills while fostering social-emotional connections between students and their coaches.
