Volunteer with Yarra Ranges Council

Bookaburra storytime

Family and Children’s Services are keen to hear from residents who are interested in becoming a volunteer storyteller or playgroup helper.

Reading to children has enormous benefits on their ability to succeed at school and learning. Reading from a very young age can have a positive effect on a child’s emotional, social and language development.

Volunteers are assessed for suitability, trained and supported to read to groups of parents and their young children (aged 0-5yrs) at a range of community venues .

For more information contact our Early Years Development team on 1300 368 333.
