Chapter One launches corporate partnership levels
Our new Platinum, Gold and Silver partnerships recognise significant levels of commitment to the Chapter One online reading programme
Commitment to impactful employee volunteering
Chapter One is excited to launch a new corporate partnership structure, recognising the significant commitment - both financial and with volunteers - made by many of our partners to our online reading volunteers programme. The programme matches corporate volunteers with 5-7 year-old children in disadvantaged areas of the country to give them vital 1:1 reading practice and support at the time they need it most. It offers companies a cost-effective, time-efficient and flexible model for online volunteering that enhances employee engagement, whilst fulfilling CSR and social value commitments around education, social mobility and inclusion.
The new partnerships levels are:
Platinum - commitment to 10+ teams (minimum 100 volunteers)
Gold - commitment to 5-9 teams (minimum 50 volunteers)
Silver - commitment to 3-4 teams (minimum 30 volunteers)
The full list of our current Platinum, Gold, Silver and other corporate partners can be seen here.
Emma Bell, the CEO of Chapter One, said: "We have been delighted by the enthusiastic response of our partners to the introduction of our new partnership structure demonstrating a clear commitment to impactful employee volunteering. Chapter One’s scalable solution of matching corporate volunteers to children as online reading volunteers offers vital support to schools and families needing help with struggling young readers. We are enormously grateful to all our partners and look forward to working with them to provide young people with essential skills so they can thrive and develop their potential.”
