We take children on voyages as readers and writers. Our after-school programmes, led by teachers, offer one to one and small group attention from trained volunteers, giving them the confidence to unfurl their sails. By welcoming them into our joyful spaces, publishing their work in the real world, and celebrating everything they do, we develop their literacy, confidence and perseverance.

We’re looking for Volunteers aged 16+ who live in and around Hackney to join our crew!

As a Volunteer Crewmate, you’ll come along to our teacher-led afterschool sessions to help children aged 9 to 13 develop their reading and writing skills. By championing their work and celebrating everything they do, you will help them, one-to-one and in small groups, to become published authors!

We’re looking for people who are positive about social change and love literacy. No experience working with children or young people is necessary as full training is provided.

Sessions run during term time Mon-Fri, 3:45-6:45pm.

About Literacy Pirates

Location:

138 Kingsland High Street, London, E8 2NS, GB

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.
