Read-y steady go! Summer volunteering opportunity for teens
Volunteers aged 12 to 18 are needed to help run activity sessions for children taking part in the Big Friendly Read Summer Reading Challenge during the summer holidays.
No experience is required - volunteers just need to attend three activity sessions at Tameside libraries during the school holidays and be able to explain things in a clear, friendly and enthusiastic way. All the support they need will be provided.
As well as helping out with crafts and games, this year they will have the opportunity to work with other volunteers to plan and run some sessions.
They will be able to develop their planning, communication and teamwork skills and boost their confidence.
It’s also a great way to get involved in the local community, do something useful with their time in the holidays and make new friends.
Anyone interested in becoming a Big Friendly Read volunteer can find out more at www.tameside.gov.uk/libraries/src/volunteer. The closing date is Saturday 25th June.
