Volunteer with Us

Become a Crewmate and support children to improve their reading and writing

Become a Crewmate

Volunteers are key to our after-school sessions, supporting the Young Pirates with their reading and writing. You will work with one, two, or three children, under the guidance of a qualified teacher who will tell you exactly what to do and who is there to support everyone. 

We are currently running a Virtual Ship on Microsoft Teams. We will be back to working in our learning centres in Hackney and Haringey when restrictions ease. 

4 steps to becoming a volunteer Crewmate

  1. Sign up – fill out our volunteer sign up form and tell us why you want to become a Volunteer Crewmate.
  2. Book on to training sessions – we hold training sessions every month. These are currently all taking place online and are divided into two sessions.
  3. Complete a DBS – after training we will be in touch to arrange a time to complete your DBS application. This will take place via video call.
  4. Book volunteering slots and attend a tech induction – once your DBS has arrived you will be invited to book into Sessions you would like to volunteer at. You will need to attend a short 30 min tech induction on Microsoft Teams where we will show you around the platform.
