Success4All (S4A) provides one-to-one befriending and educational activities to children in areas of low academic achievement, whose needs cannot be met by mainstream education. Young people are trained to run homework clubs and workshops based on their particular skills or talent, including popular coding clubs.
“In 2006, S4A's first five volunteers were from Newcastle University. Fast forward 11 years and over 400 volunteers have walked through our door from the University.
It is great that we are located so close to the University so that we can benefit from the skills and talents of the students. However, it takes more than location to get volunteers on board. Staff at Go Volunteer are incredibly enthusiastic about new projects and finding the right volunteers for us. This support and the commitment of our volunteers from the University, has been instrumental in developing S4A from one learning hub to the seven it is today, positively impacting the education of hundreds of young people."
