Volunteer for 2 hours a week with primary school children

One-Eighty are looking for a bit of your time to help support their Kick Start project. The project helps primary school children across Oxfordshire, who are restless/hyperactive in the morning. You will work alongside professional support, with a small number of children who need assistance in calming down – this then helps them to engage in learning when lessons begin.

Kick Start is a 7-week program that usually works with between 8 and 12 children who take part in a variety of creative activities.

What you will get from volunteering:

  • Helping young children get ready to learn at school
  • Training and expenses
  • Working as part of a team.

What Kick-Start project are looking for in a volunteer:

Be available one morning a week, for 2 hours (from 8.30 am) for 7 weeks

  • Energy and creativity in the morning
  • Ability to build positive relationships with children
  • Have a desire to see young people engage in learning
  • Undergo a DBS check.

All volunteers will be invited to an information evening and a training day with further support available if needed.

If you would like to get involved or find out more about the project, then please contact Sam at One-Eighty on 01865 236 869 or email sam.payne@one-eighty.org.uk
