SEEN 9.6 Employability

The Southampton Hub organise volunteering opportunities for students (UG, PGT and PGR) in local schools and community organisations. They are currently recruiting volunteers:

Schools Plus – apply to tutor now

Spend 1-2 hours a week tutoring local young people in lessons or leading clubs – we have projects covering all subjects and based in primary schools, secondary schools and further education colleges.  

Code Plus – apply to be a volunteer now

Your role as a Code Plus volunteer is to stimulate kids’ curiosity about programming and support their creative freedom using online games. You don’t have to know how to code already, however if you do know how to code or have some experience, this means you can support our more advanced young people in working with BBC micro:bit and other coding kits!

Active – apply to be a mentor now

Mentor young people aged 11-15 one evening a week in a local sports venue. Support them with sport style sessions to promote a healthy lifestyle.

Libraries Plus – apply to volunteer now

Tutor children aged 7-18 in after-school and Saturday homework clubs in local libraries across Southampton.

Branch Up – apply to be a volunteer now

Become a Branch Up volunteer and support Saturday activity days for disadvantaged young people (7-11 years old). Have fun, engage young people and receive core training before every activity day. 

Branch Up Active – apply to be a mentor now

Mentor disadvantaged young people and support them to take part in physical activity days to promote an active lifestyle.

We also have projects around supporting older people who are at risk of social isolation called LinkAges, a project about tackling food waste called BioCycle, and a one-off volunteering project called Local Action, all of which are open all year round, so there’s something for everyone.

Applications are closing on Sunday 6th February, so get your applications in as soon as possible!
