Do you want to help disadvantaged kids?? Want to get into teaching?? Hull Childrens University are looking for positive enthusiastic volunteers to become a "BUDDY" for a small group of three or four children and supporting them on some fantastic experience trips helping them bring learning to life.
There are lots of trips to choose from and you can dip in and out with no specific obligation to attend all trips/outings.
This is not really a task but a wonderful opportunity to have some fun and help children have fun whilst learning.
All over!! There are lots of activities going on in HULL such as museum visits and business visits as well as fantastic trips to LONDON where they get to see houses of parliament, get up close to 10 downing street and see the palace with a trip on the london eye. or "NIGHT IN THE MUSEUM" where children stay over night in Londons biggest museum and sleep with the dinosaurs!!
If that doesnt wow you then try "KIP ON A SHIP" HMS Belfast becomes their bed for the night how cool is that and all the time the children are gaining valuable learning experiences with you as their mentor.
- What kind of support/supervision will you receive?
Training is provided and DBS checks are completed as you start
- Personal qualities and requirements
You will probably learn as much as the children on these wonderful trips and will benefit them if you have a positive outlook and happy personality
- Work-ready skills you will learn or develop
We deliver an average of 3 modules per week so there are always plenty of experiences for mentors to take part in. there is NO set amount of activities you must attend you can take part in them once a month or once a year acting as a positive role model that so many of these children need.
HAVE A GREAT TIME AND MAKE A DIFFERENCE!!!!
