School Volunteer

  • VO75144


Description

The Retired and Senior Volunteer Programme (RSVP) in Clackmannanshire, Stirling and Falkirk provides opportunities to older people or those in or approaching retirement to volunteer in a primary or secondary school to support pupils with reading or writing, numbers, arts and crafts, music or other activities depending on the schools requirements.

We are also looking for Volunteer Organisers to help grow the network of schools our volunteers work in, as well as being involved in the recruitment and training of new volunteers.

School Volunteers are not teachers, however, the individual attention they can give to a child helps develop essential skills, as well as fostering children’s overall wellbeing and confidence.

Volunteers usually go into school for one session a week. They give one-to-one help to children selected by the teachers to benefit from it. Volunteers liaise closely with teachers to complement the work in the classroom.

Organisation aims and objectives

Our vision is of a society where everyone can participate in their local community through volunteering and social action.
