To support young people in developing literacy, confidence and perseverance by delivering motivating learning projects in a dynamic environment using the resources in our community.
The Hackney Pirates is an innovative education charity supporting young people aged 9-12 to develop the literacy, confidence and perseverance that will help them achieve both in school and the world beyond. In our unconventional learning space, a pirate ship on Kingsland High Street, young people work on reading and creative writing projects that culminate in the publication of storybooks, CDs and websites.
We are looking for volunteers who are able to donate one afternoon a month (3.45pm to 6.45pm) to work one-to-one or in small groups with our Young Pirates.
