Over the past four years CAST has partnered with an NPO called Wordworks to implement their foundation phase programme called the Early Literacy Programme (ELP).
The ELP is an intervention programme for underprivileged children in the foundation phase (Grade R through 2). The Literacy Programme provides support for children who are lacking in early language and literacy skills. Currently CAST is running the programme at Addington Primary School in the South Beach area to help Grade 1 learners develop their reading and writing skills.
Tutors/Volunteers are needed to work with pairs of children for a couple of hours each week. We currently run the programme every Tuesday and Thursday from 9-11:30am. No previous experience is needed, just a love of children and a bit of patience! CAST will provide you with initial training and ongoing support and advice.
If you would like to get involved, contact Joseph at 031 267 1716 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Contact us and you can even visit on a Tuesday/Thursday to see us in action.
Join the movement beyond charity and help us make a difference in the lives of young children!
