WriterCoach Connection

Featured City

Richmond, CA

WriterCoach Connection

Through WriterCoach Connection, over 100 community volunteers have been trained as WriterCoaches, and they have worked one-on-one with 184 Richmond High School students. In its first end-of-year assessment, over 90% of the high school students reported that their writing coaches were helpful; and teachers report that they can now give more complex assignments to these students. The program has been so successful that neighboring communities are asking how they too can get involved.
