About the volunteering opportunity

Corona has presented us all with great challenges - including our schools. With our project, reading aloud mentors can enrich the everyday school life of the children and help to close learning gaps during this time. Reading aloud helps the children to improve their reading and language skills, and discovering stories together gives them the opportunity to enjoy books.

Your Tasks

In this project, volunteers support both high-performing and low-performing primary school children through special support and attention with weekly reading lessons. The volunteers go to the respective schools and support the reading skills and knowledge growth of the children through the reading aloud programme. Reading aloud mentors read with the children in dialogue in order to develop a common understanding of the text and to awaken and strengthen the children's enjoyment of books.

What's needed

Volunteers must be native German speakers.
