Kia ora, welcome to Volunteering Northland

The Rural Youth and Adult Literacy Trust is a non-profit organisation that assists adults and teenagers living in rural areas (or who are otherwise isolated) with literacy and numeracy. Tuition is free and our tutors can coach you over the phone or Skype.
Our volunteer coaches work with a student from 3-5 days a week for 30 minutes a day, using phone, mail, fax and video-conference. Students are able to access our online practice software if they have access to a computer with internet or can get to a library computer. The Trust runs school holiday Catchup Literacy Camps for high school students who want to improve their literacy skills.

Volunteer with us! Your help can make an invaluable difference for someone like Michael Kingpotiki who learned to read and write in his 50s and is now an author:
