Space Chase Summer Reading Challenge

Arts & Education

TAMESIDE Libraries are looking for volunteers aged 12 to 18 to help run activity sessions for children taking part in the Space Chase Summer Reading Challenge in late July and August.

No experience is required. Youngsters simply need to attend three activity sessions during the school holidays and be able to explain things in a clear, friendly and enthusiastic way. All necessary support will be provided.

Cllr Leanne Feeley, Tameside Council's executive member for lifelong learning, said: "The summer reading challenge is great way of developing an interest in reading among young people and leading them into a world of wonder, imagination and knowledge. 

"Being a volunteer is a great way to develop planning, communication and teamwork skills, build confidence and make new friends. It's also a great way to get young people involved in the community and doing something useful with their time in the holidays."

The closing date for applications is Saturday, June 29.
