Volunteer as a tutor and help people with their reading, writing and maths. Tutors and learners meet for an hour once a week and work through personal learning plans. Volunteer tutors will need to complete a 6 week training course before working with a learner.
Volunteering in this role gives you the opportunity to help others finish school, get a job, or be able to read a bedtime story to their children.
