Become a Literacy Champion

We’re looking for volunteers across the North Yorkshire Coast to champion literacy in their local communities.

Anyone can be a Literacy Champion - you could be a parent, business professional, teacher, student, sports coach or just passionate about making a difference in your local area.

As a Literacy Champion, you'll be supported to run literacy projects in the way you think will work best. You will have access to training, support and information from the Our Stories team, helping you to reach those in your community who need help most.

If you're interested, please get in touch with Hub Manager Elizabeth.Dyer@northyorks.gov.uk.
