‘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. Volunteering always takes places during the school day, and usually in the afternoons.
‘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.’
