Summer Reading Challenge Volunteering

The closing date for applications was the 10th June 2019.

We are no longer looking for volunteers for the Summer Reading Challenge 2019, sorry if you missed out but we will be running this again next year.

Aiming to give children aged four to 11 an enjoyable activity to complete during their summer holiday, the Summer Reading Challenge helps prevent any dip in literacy that may occur during the long break from school and also encourages children to read for pleasure.

The theme this year is ‘Space Chase’, inspired by the 50th anniversary of the moon landing and will celebrate adventure, exploration, reading and fun.  Volunteers will talk to children about the books they have read, help children choose books and hand out rewards of stickers, posters and medals.

This is a short-term volunteering opportunity between Saturday 13 July and Saturday 7 September 2019 and is open to adults and young people aged 14 and over. Flexible volunteering sessions are available at libraries across North Somerset and full training will be provided.

For more information about this volunteering role, please take a look at our Summer Reading Challenge Role Description.
