About this opportunity

We are looking for volunteers who have a passion for literacy and reading and would like to spend time with four year old children to assist them to be ready for prep in 2018. As a volunteer with the Read With Me Project, you will be matched with an individual child so you can get to know each other and see the amazing progress you make. The expected contact with a child is once or twice weekly (30 – 40 min per session ) occurring at their childcare center or kindergarten. We have centers from Palm Beach, Currumbin, Burleigh Waters, Mermaid Beach, Labrador, Nerang, Southport, Ashmore and Coomera.
All volunteers will be trained and supported through the project. A working With Children Check is necessary and if you don’t have one, we will apply on your behalf.
: All training will be provided. All volunteers at The Benevolent Society have access to our internal professional development and training sessions held every Monday afternoon. Training covers an array of topics related to childhood development.
