Help local children to get their homework and reading done!
Mondays or Thursdays 3.30-5pm
Barton Neighbourhood Centre (on the free U1 bus route)
Help local children to do well in school, and have the future they deserve with just an hour a week!
Oxford - the city with two great universities, but sadly a city of vast educational inequality too.
Oxford's school results are in the bottom 25% across the country
40% of Oxford's children have special educational needs, many more have English as their second or third language
20% of children here live below the poverty line
For children who fit any or all of the above, doing well in school can be tough!
How you can help
There is something simple you can do to help out, just once a week 😄 Join our weekly homework club or reading club in Barton Neighbourhood Centre, and have fun meeting new people whilst supporting local children with their homework or reading, who's families can't afford a private tutor. Barton neighbourhood is easy to reach on the free U1 bus and is one of the most deprived neighbourhoods in Oxford.
The Homework Help Club and the Reading Help Club are informal, happy environments, but being able to get help from Uni students has a big impact on the children's learning.
After you sign-up we'll be in touch to welcome you to the team and invite you to the next session!
Monday during the semester for the Homework Help Club, 15:30 until 17:00
OR Thursday 15:30 until 17:00 (you can pick one club or both!)
