We are also open to anyone who would like to start a new club- Tell us what skill you want to share (or want to learn!) and let’s make it happen!

Homework Club Support/Mentor – Dates and times to be confirmed 

We plan to launch a regular Homework Club at CAN HQ, dedicated to supporting local children and young people with their out-of-school assignments. As well as supporting them with their education, we hope to create a social space that will allow them to make new connections with other local children.

We are looking for anyone interested in supporting or potentially leading the club, as well as potential longer-term mentoring opportunities. If you are interested, don't hesitate to let us know.

Or start your own project!

If you have your own ideas, skills, and passions that you would like to share with the community, we encourage you to get in touch with us so we can support you!
