Montana Writing Coaches Seek Community Volunteers

Writing Coaches of Montana seeks community members from Missoula and Ravalli counties to participate in its coaching program with a mission to help local students improve their writing skills. Specifically, the program aims to help students think critically about their writing assignments so that they can become confident and competent writers in all aspects.

No experience is necessary as volunteers will learn about the curriculum and best practices for teaching writing while being trained by qualified individuals. To become a volunteer, community members can attend one of the upcoming training sessions.

In-person training at the University of Montana Missoula is Wednesday, September 7 from 6-8:45 p.m. Virtual training will be Thursday, September 15 from 6-8:45 p.m.

For more information about these training sessions, email Missoula and Ravalli Writing Coaches Coordinator Kat Jackson at [email protected] or visit
