Become a Booker Champion

Teenager with book

Are you based in Birmingham, Bradford or Middlesbrough?

We are looking for up to 10 outstanding young volunteers to work with us between now and February to become Booker Champions and help 100 children aged between 12 and 16 to find a love of reading. In pairs or groups, you will work with us to design and deliver a series of online sessions for small groups that will take young people on a journey using stories, books and creative writing.

You will be fully trained and supported by a dedicated team. It is an opportunity to build your CV and develop employability skills such as:

  • Team building
  • Project management
  • Leadership and facilitating projects
  • Public speaking

If you would like to take part or you have any questions, please send a short CV (one to two sides) to, telling us why you'd make a great Booker Champion.
