People’s Choice is a people and community-powered category that’s a part of Public Access TV’s biggest night— the B FREE AWARDS.

Volunteer with Behind the Book (www.behindthebook.org), a non-profit literacy organization that inspires New York City public school students to explore stories and empower their voices. Through our innovative programs, which are part of the class curricula, accomplished authors visit high-needs pre-K-12 classrooms to guide students in creating their own writing projects based on the theme of the author’s book.
You need no experience or training to volunteer. As a coach, you’ll support and encourage students as they work on their projects.
This field trip needs your help in Crown Heights. To sign up, contact email@example.com with the program code. We’ll provide the address, directions, and other information when you’re confirmed:
Date: Thursday, March 22nd

Volunteer Role: Field Trip Chaperone
About the workshop: Kindergartners will visit the library where author Rita Meade works to hear her read Edward Gets Messy, a sweet, silly book about a finicky pig who finds joy in being messy. To provide students more access to a book-affirming place, Rita will also show them interesting parts of the library, and play music from the librarian band she performs with. Chaperones will travel with the class to the location, then engage students during the visit.

United by Blue is teaming up with the National Parks Service for a cleanup of the New York Bay at Fort Wadsworth!
Overlooking the New York Bay, Fort Wadsworth stands firmly on the northeastern shore of Staten Island. Facing the modern and bustling Verrazano Bridge, the fort and surrounding campus, now part of Gateway National Recreation Area, provide a contrasting glimpse into early United States history and the protection of the harbor. The New York Bay connects the Hudson River to the Atlantic Ocean, and is considered one of the largest natural harbors in the world. The waters and shoreline offer a diverse ecosystem for sea mammals, fish, and migratory birds. Unfortunately, due to the urbanization of the surrounding area, dumped litter and storm-water debris get washed on shore, and threaten the health of the water. Please join United by Blue and National Parks Service as we tackle the trash, and restore our historical New York Bay at Fort Wadsworth!
After the cleanup, our friends at Luke’s Lobster will provide a delicious lunch to all volunteers and the opportunity to learn more about sustainable seafood. Post-lunch, National Parks Service will be offering a free guided tour of Ft. Wadsworth for all volunteers, starting at 1 pm!
