About the Role
The Storyville Project
Storyville harnesses the talent of performers to encourage children to read. The program specifically targets schools with socio-economic disadvantage and/or schools where for a majority of students, English is a second language. These are often indicators that children are not being read to at home. Storyville connects schools with participating performers. All of our volunteers undergo training before being allocated to participating schools and are equipped with relevant working with children documents. Our volunteers commit to the program, enabling them to establish a real bond with students.
The Equity Foundation is wishing to appoint a Program Manager for Storyville.
