Primary School Volunteers

Primary School Volunteers

What You'll Do: 

Middlesbrough's girls have been labelled as the most disadvantaged in the country. Rubies wants to change that and to give local girls a much more positive message about their potential and their futures. Our 8 week primary school course is creative, interactive, challenging and a lot of fun.
Volunteers need to be able to commit for the full 8 weeks, usually for 4 hours from approx 12-4pm once a week. We want to increase the number of schools we work with as we know the course makes a huge difference for the girls who complete it. If you'd like to know more, please get in touch!

Why You'll Love It: 
We know that our work makes a huge difference for vulnerable girls and want to reach many more with the message that they are valued and have potential. If you'd like to find out more, please get in touch!
What You'll Learn: 
Rubies provides lots of in-house and external training to assist volunteers with supporting girls. Training courses may include safeguarding, listening skills, trauma, mental health issues and much more. By getting involved with young people, volunteers also learn about their own strengths and motivations and how a small commitment can make a huge difference.
What We're Looking For: 
We are looking for reliable, consistent,  compassionate people who understand the value of relationships when working with young people.
