We have a study support club for 12 - 21 year olds on Wednesdays 4 - 6pm, term time only, providing a quiet, supportive environment for young people to receive help with their studies.  The young people are coming from either our on-site hostel, a youth club across the road or they are part of families we are already supporting.  We are looking for volunteers with ideally some teaching experience (paid, voluntary or in your personal life) and/or a subject specialism.  We mostly need sciences, maths and English but welcome others also.
