- You only need 3‑4 volunteers for an hour one afternoon each week after school during each term.
- It doesn’t need to be the same people each week.
- All the volunteers need is a car to travel to the school to be there when the bell rings.
- Perhaps you can bring a box of fruit for the kids to share – homework is hungry work!
- You just need to work in small groups or individually with the kids to help them with their reading and other homework set by the school.
- You also need to talk and engage – the kids may want to know about your job and why school is important. Help them dream of a career, and be inspired!
What will you get out of it?
By inspiring people within your organisation to get behind a Homework Club, you will be creating your own sense of community. One that is involved with our kids, sharing skills to teach, inspire and support our low decile primary schools in the simplest way. We need a range of people from within organisations to be role models for the kids by helping them do their homework and talking with them about aiming high for a bright future.
Partner participants include MinterEllisonRuddWatts, Russell McVeagh, Colmar Brunton, the Royal New Zealand Police College and the Institute of Education at Massey University. Taking part enhances the team culture of these organisations. Please join them!
