Job Title: Volunteers for the Study Buddy Service
Want to make a world of a difference in a child or young person's life?
Positive Help is currently recruiting volunteer Study Buddies! This role involves being matched with a child or young person who is affected by HIV or Hepatitis C, whom you will work on their homework with. You will meet once a week for an individual session which can take place in the Homework Club room at Positive Help’s office or in a community space near them. After each individual session the mentor and the child/young person can go out for a meal before going back home.
-By volunteering in this role you will be helping a child or young person develop and have better chances in life.
-The role is flexible and can be shaped around you depending on your skills and availability.
-You will get regular support and comprehensive training, including First Aid.
-Current volunteers love the social aspect of the role and the opportunity to meet new people.
-Volunteers do not need any previous knowledge of HIV or Hepatitis C, nor do they need specific experience working with children, as full training is provided.
-Volunteers must be able to commit to a minimum of 6 months following completion of training. This time frame has been set in order to allow for Study Buddies to fully establish a consistent and trusting relationship with a vulnerable young person.
We are always accepting applications and recruit regularly, so feel free to apply even past this training date!
Please contact us if you would like any more information, or to get an application pack.
