Literacy is a bridge from misery to hope
One quarter of all Scots pupils leave primary school functionally illiterate. The Super Power Agency is a Scottish charity on a mission to change that statistic.

Volunteer Your Super Powers
The Super Power Agency aims to improve self-esteem and foster aspiration via the most fundamental superpower – the ability to write.
And we couldn’t do this without our team of dedicated and passionate volunteers who give their time and talent to help young people express themselves. Your country needs you!
