An Síol CDP: Volunteers for Tuition (Study Buddy) Programme
What is An Síol?
An Síol is a community development programme working in Stoneybatter, Dublin 7. It offers a range of services to the local community, from senior citizen meals to youth education initiatives (see www.ansiol.ie for more information).
What is the volunteer tuition programme?
The An Síol education programme provides free tuition for second level students in the North West inner city Dublin, prioritising Junior and Leaving Certificate students. The students are paired with a volunteer tutor for an hour long one-to-one session on a weekly basis. The tuition takes place in a local school on Manor Street on Monday evenings from 6-7 p.m. or 7-8 p.m. Tutors and their students meet in the canteen area of the school and are supervised and supported by An Siol’s education services staff.
Volunteers are asked to commit one or more hours a week from October to May. Tuition does not take place during school holidays.
All volunteers will be supported through training, a tutors handbook and the program coordinator.
Subject to Garda Clearance, an informal interview, and the return of two references volunteers will be invited to an induction evening in September to meet An Síol staff and fellow volunteers. Volunteers are matched with students from late September and tuition usually begins in mid-October.
