Coin Street Community Builders
The Coin Street Community Programmes Team deliver a range of programmes to local people through promoting health and wellbeing, creativity and self expression, employment and enterprise and skills and learning for life. We have a range of opportunities including one-off activities, regular sessions and project based programmes. We always have high demand for volunteers for our tutoring programme…

We are looking for friendly and engaging volunteers to support our weekly tutoring sessions, who can make a difference to the often-challenging lives of children and young people living in inner city London. As an online tutoring volunteer, you will enable us to support young people with their studies who might not have support at home or school.

Monday In Person Tutoring – 4-6pm @ Coin Street Neighbourhood centre

Wednesday Online Tutoring – 4-6pm on Zoom

Tutoring sessions for young people ages 10-18 years provide a safe and friendly space to do homework, go over concepts and learning and do revision. Your time will make a huge impact on young people who need academic support. This academic year we are planning for sessions to take place in person and online using Zoom. In person sessions will be held at the Coin Street neighbourhood centre in Waterloo with refreshments and materials provided. Online sessions will use breakout rooms so that pairs and small groups can work together but request support from Coin Street staff if they need help at any point.

Your time will make a huge impact on young people who need academic support. The sessions are very well attended so we need lots of great volunteers to help them run successfully!

Time commitment

Volunteers should be happy to commit to tutoring weekly for a least a term. All volunteers must provide 2 references and be willing to do a DBS check.
Application deadline
What measures have you put in place to ensure volunteers’ safety during COVID-19?
We are planning for tutoring volunteering to be in person and online for this term. Anyone who would rather not come in to tutor in person can volunteer online and sessions will revert to online if restrictions are brought in. In person sessions will take place in a large, well ventilated room which is thoroughly cleaned in between uses and hand washing/ sanitising facilities are provided.

This organisation is one of our community partner organisations.

Like all volunteer recruiters we work with, they have signed up to our service standards, agreeing to abide by our policy on partnership working.

In addition, the team here at Students’ Union UCL Volunteering Service is here to support you throughout your volunteering journey – you can get in touch at any time with any questions, queries or problems you encounter.
