Job Description

This organisation runs a volunteer-based literacy programme in prisons. 


It has been shown that if a prisoner improves their literacy they are less likely to re-offend when they return to the community. 


We are looking for people to work with students in Springhill Corrections Facility and Waikeria Prison. The programme requires a commitment of at least twelve weeks, two hours a week. Volunteers work one-on-one with a student who requires literacy or ESOL support.
 

Previous teaching or tutoring experience with children or adults is preferred but not required.
