The Literacy Pirates is an innovative educational charity supporting young people aged 9-13 to develop the literacy, confidence and perseverance that will help them achieve both in school and the world beyond.
As a Volunteer Crewmate, you'll be supporting our Young Pirates as they collaborate with professionals to publish their writing in the form of storybooks, studio recordings and films which are premiered in a local cinema.
On average our Young Pirates improve their reading age 52% faster than age related expectations – so in 9 months aboard our ship they make an average of 14 months progress. We welcome volunteers of all ages and backgrounds who are interested in supporting local young people.
All of our sessions take place Monday to Friday, usually between the hours of 15:45 and 18:45.
