After School Support Placement

Volunteers on the After School Support project will help to provide a warm and safe environment for children from disadvantaged backgrounds. Volunteers assist the care-giver in preparing and serving a hot meal and where possible helping the children with their homework and generally providing some extra care and attention which they often lack at home.

This type of project is less structured than the teaching placement and volunteers are encouraged to bring new games and activities to play once the children have completed their homework. This project is ideal for volunteers who are creative, energetic and proactive.

​I​f you apply for the After School Support project during the school holidays, you will be switched to a special holiday camp project.
