Volunteering Opportunities

Mentoring: The IntoUniversity Mentoring Scheme matches a young person (aged 10-17) with a student volunteer, giving them the opportunity to receive tailored, one-to-one support for their academic attainment, social skills and future planning.

Academic Support: Academic Support tutors will help primary and secondary students at after-school sessions at the IntoUniversity centre. Academic Support provides free tutoring and support to young people in a stimulating classroom environment. Young people receive tailored help with homework, coursework, revision and study skills.
