Ethnic Youth Support Team Wales (EYST) was set up in 2005 by a group of ethnic minority young people in Swansea. It aimed to fill a gap in provision for young BME people aged 11-25 by providing a targeted, culturally sensitive and holistic support service to meet their needs.
EYST have now ventured to Cardiff, in partnership with Sef Cymru, and are looking to recruit volunteers to tutor young people in their Cardiff Homework Clubs – Butetown Pavilion and Grangetown Garden Pavilion. The weekly tutoring will support a young person one to one for a minimum of one hour to a maximum of 4 hours.
The project aims to be mutually beneficial to all involved - the EYST team will be as flexible as possible to find the most convenient time and day for you to volunteer. You will receive a full induction training, expenses cover and continually support from the EYST staff team. The role is open to any volunteers but you will need a certain level of academic achievement in order to support the young people; for example, at least a B GCSE in your chosen subject or degree level if mentoring at A Level.
