Be a kidsREAD volunteer today!
For just an hour a week, volunteers are making a difference through kidsREAD reading sessions for underprivileged children. Like them, you too can experience the satisfaction, friendships and ties that volunteers have established at reading clubs across the island.
Our volunteers come from all walks of life – students, parent volunteers, seniors as well as working professionals. We also welcome groups (tertiary institutions, corporate organizations) to volunteer at a particular kidsREAD club, in a way adopting the reading club.
It doesn’t take much more than a willingness to give a little time. We will provide all the guidance you need to share with confidence. And the reward of joy that comes from an hour of happy children is all yours to savour.
We are on the lookout for volunteers who:
1. Are 15 years and above
2. Have a good command of the English language
3. Love books
4. Enjoy reading and interacting with children
5. Are able to dedicate an hour a week for at least 6 months (as it takes time to get to know the child and for the child to know you and make an impact)
Currently, the following kidsREAD clubs require volunteers. If you fulfil the above criteria and are able to volunteer at these clubs, please drop us an email at kidsREAD@nlb.gov.sg with your details and preferred club(s).
