Recipient Org: Description Recruits, trains and supports volunteers who work with primary school children, sharing books, games & chat, developing a supportive relationship with the aim of imparting a love of reading,. It is a life enhancing experience for both children and volunteers. After successfully completing our application, checking and training process each volunteer is given a placement in a nearby school. Children selected for ARCh support spend 2 half hour sessions with their volunteers each week, sharing books, games and chat. The charity provides resources carefully chosen to encourage even the most reluctant reader. The most important element of the sessions is fun; volunteers impart their own enthusiasm to the children, and together they share the joy of reading. Volunteers continue to work with the same children for a year, allowing time to get to know one another, for confidence to build and for friendly, supportive relationships to develop. By the end of the year our aim is that the children enjoy reading for pleasure and for purpose. The majority of our volunteers are based in the community but we do also operate an employer supported volunteering scheme and work with Oxford University Press in this way.
