Read On Get On

22 September 2014

Volunteer Now are delighted to be part of Save the Children's Read On Get On campaign.

Read On. Get On. is a national campaign to get all our children reading well by the age of 11.

At the moment far too many kids are leaving primary school without this key skill - including 40% of all our poorest children.

Our mission is to change this for good so that by 2025 all our children will start secondary school as confident readers.

Everyone can do something - just ten minutes reading a day with a child makes a huge difference and helps them fall in love with reading.

It will take everyone, parents, grandparents, business, volunteers, teachers, celebrities and politicians, to crack this problem once and for all.

Will you play your part?

Opportunities are available to volunteer in a variety of activities involving young people. Check out our website - just click on Volunteer Search Activity and choose Teaching, Tutoring and Supporting Learners.
