We are looking for individuals who have a passion for literacy themselves and who are also able to help young people realise their potential. We work in primary schools with the children, so a volunteer would need to be available twice a week, for a morning or afternoon school hours. We also need dedicated people who are willing to commit a minimum of 1 year and who will be able to make that commitment week in, week out during term time. We recruit, select, and train volunteers to provide effective support to children (aged 6 - 11) to improve their reading ability, confidence and motivation to learn. Life-changing solutions need not be complicated. Readability brings together adults, children and books - a simple combination that produces confident children, literate for life.
