Volunteer to Teach Writing
A writer's outlook on a piece a student is working on is likely to be quite different from a teacher's. Helping a kid figure out what he or she is really trying to say and how to best say it isn't the same as teaching standard essay technique and format.
Help a kid learn to write better. You may even learn something new about your own writing. Many schools and other organizations have such programs.
