We are recruiting academic mentors to join our dynamic Youth Mentoring programme to provide one-to-one academic support to girls aged 10 -18 who may fall behind in their schoolwork.
We are looking for volunteers with good GSCE or degree-level education to support various subjects, mainly Maths, English and Science.
You will act as role models, supporting academic progress and providing inspiration and encouragement to young people at risk of becoming vulnerable to further disadvantage as the attainment gaps widen. Whilst the focus is supporting academic progress, personal development, goal setting and confidence building will also be necessary.
If you are passionate about helping and inspiring others to reach their potential and want to pass on your knowledge, please get in touch!
Time Commitment: 1 weekly session for an hour over the academic year between Monday – Thursday.
Hours: 4 pm to 6 pm
Duration: For one academic year remote or in person, term time only.
Due to the nature of the work this role is open to female applicants only. Equality Act 2010: Schedule 9: Occupational Requirements
Full training and ongoing support will be provided.
Excellent interpersonal skills, patience and enthusiasm toward learning are qualities welcomed for this rewarding opportunity.
If you are studying or researching a Science, Technology, Engineering, or Maths (STEM) related subject and want to volunteer and share your knowledge and experience with young people, you could become a STEM Ambassador.
Team Up is looking for dynamic volunteer tutors to help transform the future prospects of underperforming pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds.
Do you want to make a real difference to a young person's life? If you are a current university student of any subject (or have graduated within the last 2 years), this opportunity could be for you!
