Virtual storytelling Support for hearing-impaired children (Bilingual)

Each volunteer joining this support-program must have attended our May 30th training session and be available to participate for three consecutive weeks, by leading one storytelling session every Saturday from June 6th to 20th.

A Zoom link will for each session will be shared by HandsOn one day before. Confirmed participants will be invited to attend a 30-minute session providing Zoom tips for this program on Thursday June 4th at 6pm. 


Volunteer roles: Two volunteers will be paired up and host a storytelling session for three to four children with hearing-imparied once per week. They will provide social connection and empower these children with confidence in English, as they begin to return to school in the next month. 

  • Each volunteer will operate in a pair—storyteller and facilitator
  • Each pair supports 3-4 children
  • Children will be encouraged to speak English (each pair will have a Cantonese speaker to provide support)
  • Volunteers have access to 25 scanned books for their usage
  • Some pre-coordination between volunteer pairs will be needed

每個參加此計劃的義工都必須已出席我們在5月30日舉行的簡介會,並且能在連續三週的時間內,六月六日至六月二十日可以星期六為聽障同學講故事。
