Supporting the future of our children through reading.
Reading is a powerful tool to help children grow
their vocabulary, language skills and imagination. It helps children to develop
lifelong skills that will support their future growth and learning.
Parents, caregivers and community members are invited to share the joy of
reading and help improve literacy for children in Queensland by joining the
Ready Reading program.
As a Ready Reading volunteer, Queenslanders will have the opportunity to make
a difference in their local community by supporting children's reading.
The program, in partnership with Volunteering Queensland, will provide
training to ensure volunteers are supported in their endeavours to help our
students to grow and develop through reading. Ready Readers will be connected to
schools in their local area to participate in their reading programs.
