Virtual Volunteer - Literacy Support

We're looking for Virtual Volunteers (based in the UK and aged 16 and over) to join us at our online after-school sessions, where you will be supporting young people aged 9 to 13 with their reading and writing and championing their work as they become published poets, authors and podcast creators!

We're looking for people that are positive about social change and that love literacy. No experience working with young people is necessary as full training is given.

There's never been a better time to volunteer with school closures likely to have reversed efforts to close the educational gap.

Mission Statement

We believe learning is an adventure. We exist to improve the reading, writing, confidence and perseverance of young page aged 9 to 13 who are falling behind in class, so they can achieve at school and beyond.

Description

We opened our first learning centre in Hackney (London, UK) in 2010, followed by our second centre in Haringey (London, UK) in 2019. Since September 2020 we have been running a Virtual Ship on Microsoft Teams, helping us reach even more young people. The young people that attend our programme make on average 16 months progress in the 9 months they attend the programme.
