Volunteer

The ClementJames Centre is a dynamic charity where you can make a real difference in people’s lives, whether you give your time, money or both.

There’s more than one way to help:

Business Engagement Days

We regularly run volunteering days for businesses. During our Business Engagement Days corporate volunteers work closely together with a group of employment clients, taking part in various challenges to boost our clients’ confidence, and giving one-to-one advice on interview and presentation skills. We have found that volunteers enjoy getting to know our clients and sharing their experience with them, and that clients feel more confident and prepared for future interviews.

Numeracy and Literacy Support

Support adults or children with numeracy and/or literacy on a one-to-one basis.

Minimum commitment is one hour per week for the duration of an academic term. Monday – Friday between 10am – 6pm.

Academic Support Tutoring

Work with a group of either primary (7-11 year olds) or secondary students (11-18 year olds) in our after-school homework club to support them with their academic work.

Weekly session for one term:

Primary sessions: Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays 3.30 – 5pm

Secondary sessions: Mondays & Wednesdays 4 – 5.30pm and Fridays 3.30 – 5pm

Adult Mentoring

Provide one-to-one non-judgmental support and guidance to our employment clients.

Twice monthly sessions with your mentee for 3 months. Meetings will take place at The ClementJames Centre Monday – Friday between 5 – 7pm.

The next mentoring round starts in June 2018. If you are interested or would like to find out more contact Becky Oldham on becky@clementjames.org

Student Mentoring

Act as a mentor and positive role model to an aspiring child or young person and inspire them in their academic and social development.

The Mentoring Scheme is open to current students from the University of London, Imperial College, BPP, City University, New College of Humanities, Loughborough University, Newcastle University, University of Oxford and the University of Cambridge. Individuals who have graduated within the last year from one of these universities may also apply.

Summer Carnival Arts

Help children design and create colourful carnival costumes, and supervise them during fun and creative activities. Then join our carnival float and experience the Notting Hill Carnival as a participant!

End of July to end of August, Monday – Friday from 10am – 4pm. Join us for as many days as you would like.

Ad-hoc Grenfell Tower fire related support

These opportunities might come up at short notice and could involve gathering information from local residents.

We won’t know what this will involve until closer to the time, we will give you as much notice as possible.

If you would like to find out more about any of the above opportunities, don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Email us on reception@clementjames.org or give us a call on 020 7221 8810. We look forward to hearing from you!
