Sessions are available Monday - Friday either at 8.30am or between 12pm - 3pm. On the app you pick 2 x 30-minute sessions per week that fit with your schedule. You can start at any time throughout the term and commit to 6-weeks at a time.
Opportunity description: 

Help a child at your local school learn to read, booking sessions flexibly on our app!

Leaving school unable to read well affects everything from employment to well-being, but by spending 1 hour a week at your local school you can help a child, age 5-8, become confident and enjoy reading.

As a Bookmark volunteer you will work with the same child during fun and creative sessions, twice a week, throughout the 6-week programme.

On the Bookmark app you can pick where you want to volunteer and choose sessions at times that suit you. You will receive full training and chances to develop your professional skills, as well as ongoing support from your community manager.

So if you love reading, and want to help a child near you, then start a new chapter and join the Bookmark team!

Location: 
At one of our partner schools which are located across all inner London boroughs. On the app you pick the nearest school to you.
