Homies Homework Club
Homies is a special Homework Club program run by the Library. It offers one-on-one tutoring and mentoring for Primary School aged children. Its aim is to improve educational outcomes through learning assistance, provide supportive role models in its volunteers and create a positive social environment for the students.
Homies is based at Emerald Hill Library, South Melbourne and runs on Thursday evenings 6pm - 7.30pm, during school term.
We are seeking applications for additional volunteers to join the Homies program, and assist with this important and rewarding work.
Volunteers will need to:
- Be confident in helping Primary School aged children with their homework, especially reading, writing and maths.
- Work mostly with the same child each week, to develop an effective tutoring and mentoring relationship.
- Be available Thursday evenings from 6pm - 7:30pm during school term time
- Have current Police and Working With Children Checks (free for volunteers and the Library will assist with obtaining these)
