Salusbury World run a mentoring club at Queen’s Park Community School and at Capital City Academy supporting children from migrant and refugee families in education.
That support is mostly delivered by local volunteers. They help with homework, with English language skills and with general confidence building. The aim is to enable them to play a full role in the academic and extra-curricular life of their school. Sessions take place at the two schools from Mondays to Thursdays at 3pm or 3.30pm, depending on which one is convenient for you. They last approximately an hour.
Salusbury World also recruit volunteers for after school club help at the primary school where we are based – Salusbury Primary School on Salusbury Road.
This is the time of year when they need to recruit new volunteers in as great a number as possible. The link below offers descriptions of all the roles and an application form. You get full training and supervision and they are obviously happy to answer any questions potential volunteers may have about how the mentoring programme works. There’s no need for specialist skills – no teaching experience, no lesson preparation is expected. Just a willingness to help and the time to do so.
