Who is Goodsted?
Goodsted's vision is to empower collaboration for social and environmental progress. We are a platform that connects individuals who want to share/volunteer their skills & expertise with non-profits and impact organisations. Through our digital platform, projects and organisations can post skilled based volunteer needs and find the right person to support their project. It is an open community platform with the aim to nurture collaboration to progress causes we all care about. With this post, we're looking to reach out to individuals interested in volunteering and grow our volunteer community.
Which organisation will you be supporting?
Coram Beanstalk is a charity encouraging young children to read for pleasure by equipping adults and volunteers with resources to help provide consistent reading support to them. They support children with their pre-reading skills in the early years of primary education into secondary school enabling positive future outcomes in education and building confidence in young readers. They also provide training courses for parents and volunteering opportunities for supporting young children.
What do they want to achieve?
They want to help more young readers gain confidence to succeed.
What do they need help with?
They need volunteers to train in their approach and then go into local partner primary schools at least 1 afternoon a week for at least 2 terms and support the same couple of children each week to grow a love of reading.
This role is flexible and requires a commitment of 48 hours.
