Volunteer readers

Committed volunteering

We lead a network of volunteer readers who share readings aloud of children’s picture books from very early childhood to old age in multiple places in the Nord and Pas-de-Calais, mainly with people living far away. of writing.

This network completes and enriches the actions of salaried readers by offering readings in structures with limited budgets or as a relay for salaried interventions.

In order to ensure a quality of intervention, we welcome, train and support volunteers who can mobilize time, energy and enthusiasm. We thank them warmly!

Read with me also thanks the structures that welcome volunteer readers for the trust granted.

Become a volunteer reader

A collective project

Becoming a volunteer reader means joining an organized project based on an intervention charter, a philosophy, a certain approach to reading aloud, a commitment to regularity and duration.

Volunteer readers benefit from a support system, which includes an initial interview, training, monitoring and support in the field.

They mainly use children’s picture books, chosen for their literary, narrative and graphic qualities and work with babies, children, adolescents and adults, always in conjunction with the professionals of the partner structure.

Becoming a volunteer reader takes time. Volunteer readers are invited to train regularly by participating in follow-up meetings, internships, conferences, meetings and reading committees organized by Read with me.
