The Literacy Programme

JCHS has recently reactivated the literacy volunteer programme. Adults who pass a criminal record check can volunteer between 1-2 hours per week any time between Monday and Friday from 9:00 AM and 3:00 PM. Volunteers in most cases will need their own means of transportation to the school, but if a large group of volunteers can be picked up at one location for a specific time, it is possible for the school to arrange transportation via the school bus. This needs to be coordinated at least a week in advance prior to the scheduled volunteer time slot in the roster. If you’d like to volunteer, we’d love to hear from you. Find out more on how to apply to volunteer below:
