Help Ruglonians achieve their potential
People who want to help Ruglonians achieve their potential are being urged to volunteer for a learning service that supports every age group in the town.
The Community Learning and Home School Partnership offers everything from reading programmes in schools to adult literacy and numeracy classes.
Currently preparing for a busy autumn season, they are calling for volunteers to help deliver its high quality programme of learning and fun activities.
There are a number of areas where volunteers can assist in Rutherglen and Cambuslang, depending on their interests, availability and future goals.
The computing classes offer those with IT experience the opportunity to share their skills with others, while the Cambuslang and Rutherglen Learners Forum allows those with a passion for learning to support others to learn new skills, and the work of the political literacy volunteers encourages active citizenship.
Other courses seeking volunteers includes English speaking for other languages, adult literacy and adult numeracy.
Volunteers can also support young children within school by reading with them, assisting with lending libraries and helping out at various school events.
Dominique Stack-Daly of the partnership said:“Community Learning and Home School Partnership service place a great emphasis on the role of our volunteers.
“We fully recognise the valuable contribution they provide in complementing and contributing to our area of work, serving individuals, groups and communities.
“We also appreciate the importance their service has on their own area of growth and are committed to ensuring they are supported throughout their journey.”
