If you love literature and reading development, and would like to share reading with vulnerable children and young people in the Derry and Strabane District Council Area, this could be the volunteering opportunity for you. We offer bespoke, OCN accredited training and our next 3 day course starts on 16th February, at Verbal Arts Centre.

If you are interested, please contact The Verbal for more information and an application pack on 028 71 266946 or info@theverbal.co
