Would you be interested in adding that little extra to your CV?



 



Hull Libraries runs a Code Club, part of a nationwide network of volunteer-led clubs for children aged 9-11 years.



 



Our club runs for 2 hours on a Thursday evening, school term time, at Hull Central Library.



 



How often you are needed depends on how many volunteers we have. Volunteer as regularly as you wish.



 



We will be there to support you, and provide all the materials you’ll need to help get children excited about digital making.



 

Location

Hull Central Library

What kind of support/supervision will you receive?

Full Training wil be given

Personal qualities and requirements

Code Club is nationally ran charity that encourages children to develop skills in Scratch, CSS & HTML and Python. Have a look at the Code Club website: https://www.codeclub.org.uk/



 



It doesn’t matter so much if you don’t have experience of coding as Code Club provide projects that children can attempt at their own pace. The idea is meant to be one project per session but I just let them manage it as they like – we’re a less structured environment. I encourage parents to participate with their children as well, with computing skills becoming more prevalent in the school curriculum I felt this might come in handy!



 



The site explains how it all works and shows the programmes used. I had only done some basic programming twenty years ago so I’ve taught myself using the Code Club materials (and even then I’m a bit sketchy). Quite often it’s about taking the children through the problem and helping them break it down – they often have the solution. Our aim is to allow children to enjoy coding and digital creativity, we help them to recognise the problem and work through to a solution.



 

Work-ready skills you will learn or develop

  • Organising resources and prior awareness of the projects the children are working on.

  • Have the patience, enthusiasm and interpersonal skills to work with a group of up to 10 children

  • Help children gain skills in computational thinking, problem solving, planning, designing, collaboration and inventive thinking



Develop your own knowledge of programming –

Availability

The club runs every Thursday during term time. We begin at 5:30 to start up all the PCs and make sure the print outs are ready, children and parents arrive at 6 (ish) and we finish at 7:15, but for the last quarter of an hour I often let them explore the finer details of other block programming uploaded onto Scratch (see projects on the Code Club site).

The Lighthouse at Spurn has undergone a major restoration project during 2015 and is now a Heritage must see for visitors to the area. The Lighthouse tells the story of Spurn through beautifully crafted interpretation story boards and also has a fabulous audio visual experience for visitors to enjoy. The story of Spurn spans across five floors and will enable visitors to get a glimpse into the past of this unique place; the journey concludes at the top of lighthouse where visitors will get a chance to see what Spurn is like from the top of the Lighthouse. We are looking for volunteers who can help bring the story of Spurn to life while our visitors are taking a look around. 



 



What will the volunteer be doing? 



You will inspire and interact with our visitors while they are in the Lighthouse by bringing the story of Spurn to life through talking to them and sharing knowledge about the history and changing landscape that is Spurn today.



You will move around the floors of the Lighthouse and be on hand to answer any questions visitors may have and monitor numbers. Part of this role will be to collect entrance fees so you must be happy with handling money and welcoming visitors.



Making sure visitors are well informed about potential hazards of tides and weather are also a key part of this role, plus keeping the Lighthouse free any of litter that could be a fire hazard.



Volunteers will be required to attend a formal induction and essential training prior to their stay and once volunteering will be expected to commit to at least 1 week to access the free accommodation. We anticipate a closing date of August 11th for applications to this opportunity.

People who have dementia may experience a wide range of symptoms.  These include memory loss (including not recognising close family members), difficulty communicating, confusion and in some cases, agitation and aggression.  These symptoms usually get gradually worse and may last for years and, in most cases, cannot be treated.



 



The family and carers of people with dementia often find the experience physically exhausting, and often have to deal with complicated feelings and emotions.



 



Dementia support volunteers provide support for people suffering from dementia.  This will include providing support to enable their carer to take time out from their caring role.   Due to the vulnerability of people with dementia, and the confusion many experience, dementia support volunteers will regularly work with the same family for a period of time, to allow them to develop strong and  trusting relationships with the service users.



 



Responsibilities



•           Visit people with dementia in their own homes, and stay with them whilst their carers go out



•           Offer companionship and support to the person with dementia and their carers



•           Arrange appropriate activities for the person with dementia



•           Help with making memory boxes or recording/writing down memories or reminiscences



•           With support and training, provide basic therapies such as Cognitive Stimulation Therapy



•           Identify any immediate difficulties which could be referred on to the appropriate service for help and support



•           Report any worries or problems to the Volunteer Coordinator and/or Volunteer Buddy



•           Complete routine administration records after contact and within set timescales.

Advocacy support should focus on empowering an individual to take as much choice and control in their situation as possible. Whilst the volunteer advocate role can be fairly long term (between 6 and 12 months) it should always strive not to encourage dependency on the support and empower someone towards independence. Part of the service we would like to provide is to facilitate long term advocacy partnerships between those who require support and volunteer advocates. We need volunteer advocates to help support issues people might be facing in their life, each of which may be preventing them from living their life as fully as possible and with the maximum choice and control possible. The volunteer advocate would be matched with a person requiring support and be supported to develop a partnership with that person. Volunteers need to be 18 years or over. This role is in office hours, Monday to Fridays. They will receive training from the advocacy service and ongoing support and supervision. We hope that the role would be as rewarding to the volunteer as it potentially can be for the person accessing the service. An enhanced CRB will be required for this opportunity. If you are interested please contact the volunteer team.

By giving them information they want and need, we can equip them with facts to make informed lifestyle choices and help shed taboos about cancer. We can also ensure they are able to cope when cancer affects them – whether they are diagnosed themselves, or if a friend or family member gets cancer.



 



We need your help to raise more income and reach more people so that we can provide Macmillan’s vital services to everyone who needs us.



 



 



- putting up posters and leaflets promoting our largest national fundraising event



- leading on getting a group of students together to organise your own coffee morning within your place of education



- distributing Macmillan collection tins where possible



- organising your own fundraising events throughout the year



- raising awareness of Macmillan and growing support for our work by talking about what cancer is and how Macmillan can help in your assemblies, student council meetings or within your student union meetings



- putting posters and leaflets up in your building to promote keeping healthy



- asking teachers, lecturers and students to become campaigners by having a campaign sign up day.



 



The experience and skills you can obtain by taking on this role:



•           meeting and working with new people



•           learning new skills which would benefit future applications to further education, volunteering roles or employment whilst having fun



•           a reference and invaluable experience for your CV



•           gaining experience of event planning, fundraising and of the charity sector in general
