Volunteering during COVID-19

Reading Odyssey: Stories at Home

During the COVID-19 period, there were many unprecedented challenges and the team alongside with community partners, continued to reach out and engage the children by exploring new modes of engagement.


SHINE launched a series of online sessions, guided by volunteers called ‘Reading Odyssey: Stories at Home’ which could be accessed through mobile phones or other digital devices.

The programme provides volunteers with the opportunity to help enable the children to get a good start in reading so that they can perform better in life.


You will be required to:

  • read with children, either in pairs or in small groups

  • listen to children reading aloud

  • engage in discussion with the children to build up their confidence and reading skills
