We have 32 centres and extension projects across England, that provide Academic Support, primary and secondary school workshops, university application support and mentoring for young people. Our Coventry Centre, opened in 2018, in partnership with the University of Warwick and already has made a massive difference to the lives of hundreds of young people.

    We have an exclusive opportunity for University of Warwick students to act as mentors in supporting our young people to achieve their academic, social and future goals. You will meet at least once every two weeks for 1-15.hrs based on you and your mentee’s shared availability.

    Acting as a role model, you will support their learning, increase their knowledge of university and boost their confidence. Providing 1:1 support you will see the young person develop over the year, evidencing your contribution to their future success.

    Mentors will gain skills in leadership, communication and problem solving while making a real difference to the life chances of their mentee. This is an excellent opportunity for those interested in working in education or who would like to gain experience working with young people

    Scouting Leader

    Coventry Scouts

    This opportunity is ongoing, with no end date.

    Scout leaders help children and young people take part in a wide range of activities

    You don’t need to be Bear Grylls to join us. You don’t need to have been a Scout when you were younger. You don’t even need to know how to put up a tent. Our door is open to people of all ages, genders, races and backgrounds, and we’re only able to change lives because people like you lend a hand. We’re talking about tea makers, tidy-uppers and skill sharers. We’re talking about mini bus drivers and first aiders. We’re talking about students who want to boost their CV, and parents who volunteer so they can spend more time together as a family.

    Whatever your skillset, lend a hand for as little or as much time as you can spare, and we promise you’ll get more out than you put in. Because whether you’re helping a leader to run an activity in the local town hall, organising a night away, or buttering 120 slices of bread a group of very hungry eleven year olds - no two Scout meetings are the same. The difference you make, though, is always great.

    We provide the training. You show up, get stuck in, and make memories for life.

    As long as you're over 18, you can help out as an adult volunteer in Scouting.

  • Cheylesmore Good Neighbours: Retired Rewired is a community outreach project. Volunteers tutor older people, helping them to use their laptops, phones and tablets. Register your interest to join the Cheylesmore Good Neighbours: Retired Rewired mailing list.

    We teach older people how to use their phones, tablets and laptops so that they can remain independent and connected with the community. We have three different projects - Cheylesmore, Earlsdon, and Ekta-Unity.

    There is NO previous experience required! If you know how to work your phone/laptop/tablet then you'll be able to teach the older learners how to use theirs. Often you'll be teaching them quite basic skills like how to use Google Maps, share photos and send emails. In the event that something that you are unfamiliar with arises during the sessions, one of the project leaders will always be there to help!

    We have projects in three different locations. Each project has a different time commitment. To find out more about each project click the links above!
