At The Literacy Hubs our volunteers are a vital part of the work we do, enabling us to provide high quality, 1-1 and small group support to the young people on our programme.

Who Can Volunteer?

As a not-for-profit, educational charity, we aim to be as inclusive as possible and welcome applications from people with a variety of backgrounds. You don’t need to have worked as a teacher, or in a school to join the team; an enthusiastic desire to create a positive and supportive environment is enough of a qualification! However, we are currently unable to accept applications from anyone under the age of 18.
