Into School Programme, Creative Workshops Volunteer

Time commitment: 1-3 Hours per week (online)

We are recruiting for a volunteer to support the Programme Coordinator to provide weekly creative workshop sessions to the girls enrolled on the programme. The Into School programme facilitates the transition of newly arrived refugee and migrant girls between 11-18 years old into the UK Education system and society. The key aims are to provide support and guidance in school admissions. The Programme provides a holistic space for the girls to learn English, develop friendships and have fun whilst they are waiting to secure a place in school/college. This exciting volunteer opportunity will involve:

  • Preparing and delivering virtual lessons to students of different ages and abilities
  • Planning and preparing creative and engaging materials for the sessions
  • Supporting and motivating the student’s wellbeing through creativity

Previous teaching experience is desirable but not essential. An interest in arts and crafts and all things creative and motivating is essential to this role. This opportunity also requires excellent communication and listening skills and a patient, non-judgmental approach. Knowledge of using virtual platforms to deliver sessions or willing to give it a go is welcomed.

Baytree Youth Service is delighted to be partnering with Fulham Football Club to run this popular after school club again!  We are looking for a volunteer who has a passion for sports and in particular, promoting sports activities for girls to provide support in delivering this outdoor activity alongside coaches from Fulham FC.

We are seeking skilled and experienced volunteers, who can assist in the development of information sessions within our Women’s Service social mobility programme of activities that are designed to provide enrichment and knowledge in key areas in women’s lives: education, finances, wellbeing, family and employability.

This term, the focus is on education, we are seeking professionals, retired teachers or those who are knowledgeable in the UK education system to provide online workshops exploring this complex and daunting process. It can be hard for families establishing a life in the UK to understand and know how to go about finding the right school for their children. The aims of these workshops will be to equip families with a general overview of the Primary and Secondary education systems, different types of schools available to them, and important transitional stages and exams. Knowledge of using virtual platforms to deliver sessions or willing to give it a go is welcomed! An ability to speak Spanish or an additional language is also desired but not essential. We are also happy to hear from you if you would like to deliver a workshop in any of the other social mobility themes mentioned above – all ideas will be considered!
