Literacy Support Volunteer

Literacy Support Volunteer

The Literacy Pirates is an educational, pirate themed charity that takes children aged between 9 and 13 on voyages as readers and writers. Our after-school programmes, led by teachers, offer one to one small group attention from trained volunteers.

What You'll Do: 

We're looking for Volunteers (based in and around Hackney and Haringey that are aged 16 and over) to join us at our 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. 


Sessions run during term time Monday to Friday, 3.45pm-6.45pm. 



Why You'll Love It: 

This is your chance to make real impact. Kids we work with usually boost their reading age by 5 to 6 months every term—four times more progress than they make in a whole school year. This is your opportunity to be part of making a big difference for these kids. 

What We're Looking For: 
  • 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.
