Help at-risk children and youth with reading and other skills development, in breathtaking Cape Town. This volunteer program is especially suitable for:
Alter 18+


Assist trained adults to motivate and uplift primary school learners with the necessary skills and capabilities that will enable them to become stronger individuals.   You will have the opportunity to engage learners in both educational and recreational activities to keep them safe and reduce the risk of being a victim to violence on the streets.  

The goal is to stimulate children’s language development by introducing beautiful stories to them. Storytelling develops listening skills, enhances verbal expression, increases comprehension, creates mental images and highlights verbal reasoning. It also encourages the child to value books and stories.

As a volunteer you will be able to assist learners in the following areas:

Cognitive Impact: The learners’ understanding of the story and asking questions require logical and analytical thinking.

Social Impact: Through stories they learn appropriate behavior when relating to others and how to cope with their feelings.

Physical Impact: The learner learns how to handle books appropriately and it develops their motor skills through picking books up and paging through them.

Emotional Impact: Observe how the learners are feeling, what interests excites them, what their fears and anxieties are and what they already know and can do.

Language Impact: It provides opportunities for learners to read books in their own mother tongue. Listening to stories helps them to understand how the language is structured and how to use it; including the sounds, words, grammar and sentence construction.
