Apply to be a Volunteer

LIFE relies heavily on its enthusiastic, dedicated volunteers - our LIFE Force - who offer their time and effort to help run our literacy intervention programmes and other initiatives. Volunteering for LIFE can range from a one-off engagement to help collect and sort books, to involvement in the volunteer-staffed weekly Paired Reading Programme in the government schools or opening up school libraries for children to check out reading books. If you would like to get involved, please complete the form below and review our Paired Reading Volunteer Handbook. We look forward to hearing from you, and thank you for your interest!

The Ministry of Education’s policy on volunteers (ED18) mandates that all school volunteers have a police clearance certificate and child protection training. To volunteer with LIFE, volunteers are required to submit a police clearance certificate, as well as the completion of the Darkness to Light: Stewards of Children certification (cost: US $10) and the Darkness to Light: Recognising and Reporting Child Abuse and Neglect (cost: USD $5).

Before you can submit your LIFE volunteer application form, please upload the documents that are listed above. 3 file uploads are required, one for each certificate. (There is a three file upload max. and only jpg, png and pdf formats are allowed.)

Once we have received your application and supporting documents, we will send you the instructions on how to complete the final mandatory required training, which is the Ministry developed Child Safeguarding Workshop, Online Module.
