Workworks is a fantastic NPO working in Hout Bay. They have numerous programmes including sending volunteers into schools to support younger children with literacy, often where English is their second language. They provide training and mentoring for Grade R teachers, as well as training Home Visitors who then, can each support 20 families of children who are not attending pre-school, providing them with skills to aid early language and literacy.
Workworks are always in need of volunteers to go into the schools and help Grade R –Grade 3 with literacy. They ask for 2 hours a week during school term for a minimum of 6 months. No previous experience is necessary but they provide a half day training course and all necessary teaching materials.
