‘Volunteering has been life changing.’
We are confident you will enjoy being part of our team of friendly, enthusiastic volunteers – in a recent survey 100% of volunteers felt that their training helped them carry out their role and 94% felt supported in their role by Learn to Love to Read. 93% of volunteers felt their work made a difference to the children and 100% would recommend volunteering with Learn to Love to Read to others. Sixty trained volunteers are currently working across six schools in Wandsworth.
Our volunteers read with three Year 1 or 2 children every week, for 20-25 minutes each. To ensure volunteers build a good relationship with the children, we ask them to commit to volunteering for the entire school year.
‘L2L2R volunteers are such a friendly and warm-hearted group of people - it is always a pleasure to arrive at school to see them! The children all have such individual characters and it is lovely to see them grow in confidence and enjoy reading.’
