Help to provide drop-in and booked homework support for children in local libraries.
Wednesdays and Saturdays throughout term-time
Libraries in Southampton
What is Libraries Plus?
We are LibrariesPlus, a team of student volunteers who tutor in local libraries for free. We help school children of any age and any ability with reading, writing, homework and school projects. We set up a table in the libraries and help any child who comes over; they can stay as long as they need to.
The sessions we currently hold are:
Portswood Library, SO17 2NG: Wednesdays 4-6pm
Burgess Road Library, SO16 3HF: Wednesdays 4-6pm
Central Library, SO14 7LW: Saturdays 10am - 12pm
Interested in becoming a tutor?
The project is ideal for enthusiastic students who want to get involved with the children in their community and make change by providing free tuition to children who need it. It is a great work experience opportunity for any career involving children, and the volunteering aspect shows your commitment! It also gives you the all important examples to talk about if you apply for teacher training. And finally, you may even find that tutoring helps with your studies.
No prior experience is necessary, just an interest in helping children.
This project takes place at different libraries near to campus! However, if reasonable adjustments require you take an alternative form of transport, just get in touch and we can cover your costs. We reimburse all Southampton Hub volunteers' travel expenses.
Why not volunteer with a friend?
Volunteering for Southampton Hub is social and you'll have the chance to meet many like-minded people, but why not ask a friend to sign up with you too?
