Could you help a child to read?

24 February 2020

Reading is a vital life skill that opens doors for young people.

As a reading volunteer for an E-ACT academy, you could make a real difference to a child in your local area by helping them to develop a lifelong love of reading.

By giving just one to two hours of your time per week, you can help a young person to improve their literacy abilities and develop the skills they need to reach their full potential.

If you would like to make a real difference by becoming a reading volunteer:

  • You’ll need to be able to give just one to two hours of your time per week
  • You’ll need a good command of spoken and written English
  • You don’t need to have any qualifications
  • We will need to carry out the necessary background checks
  • You’ll take part in training provided by the academy

If you would like to volunteer, or you would like more information, please call 0121 464 5530 or email Midlands@E-ACT.org.uk.
