Youth Empowered Opportunity: Help refugee children with their homework via Zoom

"Jockey Club Community Sustainability Fund - Youth Empowered Project
賽馬會社區持續抗逆基金 – 見「義」勇為青年義工計劃"

Funded by: 捐助機構: 


Description: Refugees are a marginalized group in Hong Kong as they are unable to work and gain a decent income to serve the basic needs for them and their families. For most of the refugee children, after-school activities and tutoring that develop abilities and build self-confidence and social skills are an inaccessible luxury. During the COVID-crisis a number of children have fallen behind with their studies. Our student leaders are calling for young people with the passion and skills to provide a virtual tutoring session on Saturdays for refugee children who are 6 - 12 years old. These Zoom sessions will support them with their Chinese, English, Maths or General Studies homework, depending on the priority for that week.

Volunteer roles: 
 
·       Volunteers will be working in a pair to provide homework support to a child through Zoom.
·       Each volunteer pair will be added to a WhatsApp chat group 1-2 days before that Saturday’s session.
·       2:1 homework support will be provided through Zoom with each group being allocated to their own break-out room, managed by our 'Youth Empowered' volunteer leaders.
·       We encourage volunteers to sign up for more than two weeks to provide continuous support to these children.
