The DEAR Reading Program – Volunteers Required

The Develop Enjoyment About Reading (DEAR) Program has been operating at the Westport Campus for the past nine years and over this time a large number of students have been given the opportunity to develop beyond their existing abilities in order to become better readers and learners.

The program offers a very relaxed learning environment. Students work on a one-on-one basis with their volunteers with each students needs tailored into the program to help them where most needed. Our volunteers offer a tremendous contribution, supporting our students in areas such as Literacy, Numeracy and Social Skills.

Students come to the Library once a week to work with either a volunteer from outside the school or one of our very own Year 11 or 12 students to assist them in areas of need.

Volunteers Required

We welcome volunteers to come in and read with our students to help develop life-long skills that will support their future growth and learning.
Requirements:
- 1 to 2 hours per week
- Working with Children check

As a reading volunteer in our school community you will have the opportunity to make a difference in the local community by supporting childrens reading.
