University outreach programme volunteering opportunity


Universify Education seeks enthusiastic students who are passionate about university to act as Volunteer Coaches on our summer residential and 3-day Easter weekend at Oxford University.   

We inspire Year 10 students from non-selective state schools to strive for, apply to, and be accepted at highly-selective universities. Our intervention starts earlier than most outreach programmes, giving students the time to develop their goals and achieve the required GCSE grades to make a good application to university. Students attend academic sessions, delivered by academics, and undergraduate volunteers provide student welfare support and ongoing coaching throughout the programme.   
 
Help run our summer programme in Oxford between 10th– 17th August, 17th-24th August, or 24th– 31st August 2019 and receive free meals and accommodation and join our extensive leadership and coaching training programme. Our volunteers play a vital role in leading student groups, providing pastoral care and delivering one-to-one academic coaching. Our team of professional coaches, who specialise in working with excluded pupils, provide all volunteers with training in what makes an effective coach. You will also receive training in mental health first aid and safeguarding. Please visit our website for further details.

 

Apply by 31st May 2019 at universifyeducation.com/volunteer/ for an opportunity to help young people to achieve their dreams of attending university and to continue breaking down the barriers to higher education.
