I USED MY SKILLS TO BECOME A VOLUNTEER READING MENTOR: JENNIE
“As a volunteer with Centre 404, I have been given the opportunity to use my skill as a reading mentor, to support a lady with a learning disability to read and write. Jamie’s confidence and ability, has blossomed during our sessions. I am now a paid support worker for Centre 404 and I’m fortunate enough to see Jamie every week, where we are currently working towards one of Jamie’s goals, where she is able to write a letter.”
Jennie Bohane, previously a teaching assistant, became a volunteer buddy and reading mentor for Jamie. She has recently been employed as a Centre 404 support worker and continues to work with Jamie to achieve her goals.
