This is a fun opportunity for young volunteers to assist at afterschool primary school activity sessions. These session will vary depending on the location, but are likely to either be homework clubs, sports clubs, gardening sessions, art sessions or coding clubs. Young volunteers will assist the project coordinator by helping set up equipment, showing children what to do, ensuring the children engage well and are kept safe. The sessions are likely to be straight after school and be around an hour in length. This is a great opportunity to gain experience of working with children in a relaxed and fun environment. Volunteers will be supported & supervised by the project coordinator.
Volunteers will visit housebound learners within their own homes for one hour per week to provide tuition on the computer. Tuition will last for 8 weeks and will generally cover basic digital skills such as using internet and email, online shopping & social media, but can be flexible dependent on what the learner would like to cover.
The Volunteer Club Leader will run the group by helping learners, either one-to-one or in small groups, on a range of topics, depending on what learners would like to cover using resources provided by the coordinator and with the help of other volunteers.
