Who volunteers for Springboard for Children?

At Springboard we have volunteers of all ages, interests and backgrounds. Whether you are looking for experience to add to your CV or have time to share with your community please get in touch. We all share a belief in the power of education and the importance of literacy. 

Do Springboard volunteers need any previous experience or qualifications?

You don't need to have any specific experience or formal qualifications. We give you training and support so you have the skills and confidence you need. If you would like to be volunteer in a school it is important you have a good level of literacy so you can take on the role with confidence. Most important is a willingness to learn the skills and a commitment to making a difference.

Springboard for Children's Essential Volunteering programme is currently supporting children in schools in Greater London and Romford.

I have complete admiration for the children who have come through the doors.  It’s amazing to watch their courage, confidence and determination grow term by term. It’s been a real privilege to work with them one to one.
