70 minutes that can change attitude towards learning
The Devonport Chaplaincy Support2Learn mentoring program enables you as part of this local community the opportunity to volunteer at least 70 minutes per week as a tutor. As a tutor you provide support to young people who are facing learning difficulties. Given that the Support2Learn program is different to other tutoring programs it ensures that the foundation is relationship.
Your mentoring and tutoring aims to not only, overcome immediate learning problems, but in the context of positive relationship it helps support students, emotionally, socially, spiritually and to encourage positive beliefs and attitudes toward learning. This helps to sustain a young persons interest in school encouraging them to pursue their chosen paths in the future. A positive attitude toward learning and selfbelief in their own ability is related to improved school performance and success in achieving learningrelated goals generally.
