Bookmark is a charity set up to address the UK’s literacy gap. Their aim is to create flexible volunteering at the heart of communities, so that they can help children develop the reading skills they need to succeed in school and beyond.
To connect people who can help, Bookmark has developed a digital platform that matches schools with vetted and trained volunteers in their community.
Could you inspire a child? By reading with a child, you can change their narrative.
The Bookmark mobile app and flexible 6 week programmes provide an easy way to organise reading sessions at nearby schools, at times that work for you. A stroll from your accommodation or a short walk after a lecture – you decide.
Volunteering with Bookmark is a chance to positively impact a child’s future, receive training and gain new skills that will impress prospective employers.
