We are excited to announce that a new homework club is starting in Heidelberg West, with online applications now open for volunteer tutors to join the program.
Himilo Community Connect’s homework club provides a place for volunteer tutors and students to share in improving career and community aspirations.
When: Volunteer one evening a week (from 1.5 to 3 hours) Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday. Starts during August 2017, apply now.
What: Work with students to improve study skills, planning, specific homework tasks and to support them in their commitment to education.
Who: Could be you! Requirements include a valid Working With Children Check and we provide training on tutoring skills, child safety and cultural learning. E-focus Child Safe Policy applies.
Students will mostly be from the Somali community but the program is open to all primary and secondary students.
Where: Shop 48, The Harmony Centre, Bell St Mall, Heidelberg.
Why: This is a fantastic opportunity to volunteer your skills within our local community, support students and improve education outcomes. Tutors’ feedback includes: “I get as much out of the program as the children do, I feel that I am helping the children prepare for their future learning.” (CMY homework tutor).
How: Register your interest through this Application Form or contact us to discuss options.
Student Registration: Come into Shop 48 to complete a form to register primary or secondary students for this program.
Himilo Community Connect is a community led project, through E-focus. We also thank La Trobe University for their support.
