Summer Reading Challenge Volunteer Application

Have you volunteered with us for the Summer Reading Challenge before (required)


If you have previously volunteered for the Summer Reading Challenge, would you be interested in becoming a ‘team leader’? This is a voluntary role that would involve supporting other volunteers e.g. showing them what to do, developing new activities etc. This may be particularly good for young adults looking to improve their voluntary experience.
