Beanstalk recruits and trains volunteers to work one-to-one with children who have fallen behind in their reading. Their programme, Reading Leaders, trains older students to read with younger students within the same educational setting. This is an excellent example of youth social action as the older students are supporting the younger students to improve on existing, vital skills. It is also an excellent opportunity for the older students to showcase their initiative and leadership skills. Reading Leaders is a great addition to qualifications or awards, such as the Duke of Edinburgh.
