  • Penryn Campus parkrun logo

    Penryn Campus parkrun

    Parkrun is a free, weekly, community 5k and takes place on the campus. Parkrun provides a positive, welcoming and inclusive experience and is run by local volunteers.

    Parkrun is a free, volunteer-organised event every Saturday where you can walk, jog or run a 5k course. It's great for fun and fitness. There are over 700 parkruns across the country and we've been working for nearly 2 years to get one here on the campus.

    We need between 13 and 15 volunteers a week to run parkrun safely and we'd love to hear from you if you want to help out for a couple of hours on a Saturday morning. Most volunteers turn up at about 8.30am and it's all over just after 10.00am. Volunteering roles are really easy to learn and there are people familiar with parkrun to help if you get stuck. Roles include marshals, barcode scanner, timekeeper, funnel manager, tail walker and giving out finish tokens. Volunteering is a great way for people of all ages to meet new people and if you have young people doing Duke of Edinburgh it can count as part of your volunteering efforts. We will follow parkrun's Covid framework at all times to provide a safe environment for runners and volunteers.

    The route starts in front of Tremough house, goes up and down the old drive three times with a loop towards Peter Lanyon buiding, then after the third loop the runners return to Tremough House where the finish line is located.

    To volunteer, you need to register with parkrun, which is free and easy: 

    https://www.parkrun.org.uk/register/ 

    (you can use this page whether you are a runner or a volunteer, even though it just says new runner). Once you have your unique parkrun number, which begins with an A, drop us a line at penryncampus@parkrun.com and tell us you would like to volunteer!

    The Access Project

    Education charity supporting disadvantaged young people 14-18 through an in-school programme of support as well as tuition provided by students and professionals to support their academic studies.

    The Access Project is an education charity supporting young people from disadvantaged backgrounds in London, Birmingham and the Black Country, the East Midlands and Bradford. The programme provides in-school support which includes 1 to 1 mentoring, university trips and workshops as well as personalised academic tuition, to help disadvantaged young people gain places at top-third ranked universities.

    At the moment, young people in the UK from disadvantaged backgrounds are six times less likely to progress to a top-third university compared to their peers working at a similar academic level, so The Access Project seeks to change this. We help these young people to see university as something that is “for them”, to support them to make competitive applications and to get the grades they deserve so that they can fulfill their potential.

     

    We are looking for undergraduates, postgraduates, staff, and alumni who would be able to tutor a young person aged 14-18, online, 1 hour a week in term-time Sept-Nov 2021- Summer 2022 to support them with their academic studies.

    •Support a young person in a school subject to achieve the GCSE / A level grades they deserve and to fulfil their potential.

    •Inspire, motivate and raise aspirations towards higher education and the world of work.

    •Students supported by The Access Project typically achieve a grade higher at GCSE and are four times more likely than their peers to progress to a top-third ranked university.

    No prior experience necessary, full training included with start dates through the autumn term.

    Interested? You’ll need to:

    · Either be currently studying for an undergraduate degree or have an undergraduate degree/equivalent professional qualification.

    · Either have an A Level subject you wish to tutor at GCSE (grade B or above) or an undergraduate degree in a subject you wish to tutor at A level.

    · Be able to spare 1 hour a week in school term time over the next academic year to tutor (starting Sept/Oct 2021), plus 30 mins a week preparation time.

    · Be prepared to undertake an enhanced DBS check (criminal records check) and provide two references (personal or professional).

    How does it work?

    1. Sign up at www.theaccessproject.org.uk/volunteer

    2. Sign up to any of our 2.5 hour training sessions over the summer, there are various dates so you can find one that suits you: During this session you’ll learn everything you need to know for your weekly 1 hour tutoring sessions.

    3. You’ll complete a DBS check (criminal records check) and an online safeguarding course.

    4. We’ll match you with a student who is looking for support in your subject. In particular, we are seeing high demand from our students for support with sciences and maths so volunteers who are able to support in maths and science subjects would be particularly welcome. There are also many opportunities for volunteer tutors in other subjects including humanities and languages.

  • The Wave Project logo

    The Wave Project

    The Wave Project is a charity running award-winning Surf Therapy sessions to improve the emotional & physical wellbeing of children with mental health challenges and/or physical disabilities.

    The Wave Project is a children's mental health charity founded in Cornwall in 2010, using award winning surf therapy to improve their emotional & physical wellbeing. Children can be refered to The Wave Project by one of our referral partners e.g. their school, a social worker or their GP if they are between 8-21 years old.

    The success of the Wave Project is largely due to the role of out volunteer "surf mentors" during sessions who act as 1 to 1 support for a child. Research shows again and again the importance of children having access to emotionally available adults before the age of 18. We hope to interrupt negative experiences children may face by injecting some fun and positive into their lives during sessions, helping to increase their self-worth and aspirations.

    We provide training in and out of the water to all volunteers. The generosity of our amazing extended Wave Project family helps us to continue our Surf Therapy courses and Surf Club and, with endless opportunities to lend a hand, we will never have enough volunteers. Whether you would like to become a surf mentor, shop assistant, events volunteer, office intern or fundraiser we would love to hear from you.

  • Tutor The Nation logo

    Tutor The Nation

    Connecting university students with disadvantaged pupils give young people the confidence and tools to work towards their future aspirations.

    At Tutor The Nation, we aim to address the growing divergence of educational opportunity and educational success, between the relatively privileged and the relatively underprivileged. We do this by delivering online, 1:1, subject-specific, free tutoring sessions

    So what makes us unique? Our 1:1 online tutoring is completely free: to the pupils, tutors, schools, and the taxpayer. We interact directly with local councils to ensure that we support the young people who need it most.

    The benefits of the tutoring provided by our volunteers coated by overstated. Apart from helping with a particular subject matter, not only does this give the confidence ad tools to do better academically, but more importantly, the motivation to be the best of themselves in their future aspirations.

    Tutor The Nation feels it is imperative to offer extra support to pupils in the state sector who will be severely disadvantaged as young adults looking for employment in an uncertain economic climate. With your help, we can address the immediate challenge linked to the pandemic in addition to providing a longer-term contribution to reducing educational inequality.

    We understand that many university students are themselves finding student life, of the lack of it, difficult. Together we can contribute to enhancing student experiences from home. The feedback we have received so far suggests that volunteering remotely has had a positive impact on the volunteers and many felt uplifted by the mentoring process. As there are fewer opportunities for travel or internships available, this will be perceived as a positive way of spending time during a period of national uncertainty.

    Frequently asked questions and additional information

    How to Apply

    We use an online application form. This will ask you some questions about yourself, and then about any skills, qualities or experience you have that are relevant to the role. Do think carefully about these answers. Try to give examples where relevant - we generally need more than one line responses. The more information you give us, the more we can get a picture of whether you will be right for the role.

    We sometimes receive applications that we have to reject, as the applicant hasn't given us enough, or the right information to know whether they would be a good fit for the role. We don't want to miss out on people who could be great volunteers for us, so we have created some guidance on filling out our form.
