Opportunities for volunteers in schools

OPPORTUNITIES FOR VOLUNTEERS IN LITERACY SUPPORT AND BEYOND!

We have a dedicated band of over 30 volunteers who visit two schools in Sydney to support young students, many of whom are not otherwise able to access the literacy support that is required to be successful.

We invite people who have as little as one hour a week to spare during school terms, to join this group in making a difference to lives of young children. No formal skills are required; training will be provided. A love of literacy and the motivation to help young children in this area is what is required.

If you have the time but would like to explore other ways to support young students, then there may also be something for you!
