Literacy Support

-Helping the future-

Our volunteers partner with The Link Literacy Project to teach children in Grade 2 and 3 (Ages 8-10) to read. Many are shocked when they realise that there are children in Grade 3 who still can't read, but this is the reality teachers deal with daily. We currently operate in two local schools: Risidale Primary and Panorama Primary.

Our volunteers spend time one-on-one, twice a week (something these kids very seldom get) for 45 minutes as follows:

- 15 minutes | Child reads to volunteer
- 15 minutes | Literacy games and support
- 15 minutes | Reading a story to the child

We also partner with the schools for teacher and student support and any other community needs that arise.
