After School Program

Volunteers can teach English or Maths, tutor individual students or small groups, coach sports, help prepare lunch and play games with children.

Volunteers are requested to be at the BNC from 1 pm to 6 pm Monday to Friday and occasionally on Saturdays or Sundays to coach sporting events or teach swimming at the local pool.  Daily activities include teaching English or Maths to learners in grades 1 to 7 or doing individual tutoring or small group lessons to learners who are struggling academically.  The afternoon begins with helping to prepare the lunch (sandwiches, fruit and veggies) and then serving it.  Classes are held from 2:30 pm to 4:30 pm and then the children play educational games or outdoor sports until the centre closes at 6 pm.  Volunteers are encouraged to share their skills in the field of music, arts and crafts or whatever it may be!  Chess, Yoga, Knitting, Conflict Resolution and Counselling......we welcome new ideas and encourage volunteers to share their knowledge and expertise with us!
