Volunteer-tutor program

The program’s purpose – suteikti tėvų globos netekusiems vaikams individualią ugdomąją ir emocinę pagalbą būnant savanoriu–korepetitoriumi ir padedant suprasti išsilavinimo svarbą, užpildyti mokymosi spragas, išmokti kurti pasitikėjimu grįstus santykius, įsitraukti į darbo rinką.

The program focuses on children, especially those experiencing social exclusion, from families with a lack of social skills and families at social risk, who have lost parental care, who live in foster homes or with caregivers or adoptive parents (hereinafter - Children).

We invite you to engage wholeheartedly in active, long-term volunteering in children's care homes, day centers, and socially sensitive families. To become a tutor and a friend, to help learn and grow, to inspire hope and connect - these are the words that describe the essence of this activity.

Become a volunteer-tutor. Visit a children's care home or daycare center and teach your pupil the thing you know best! You can teach subjects taught at school: Lithuanian, mathematics, English, chemistry, physics... or offer us the original idea - your lesson.

We believe that time and effort are more valuable than material support. Continuous attention is more valuable than one-time attention. The bond established with the Child is priceless. With our work, we aim to reflect the values of "Not to take, but to give" - belief in change in everyone, building trust, and reflection on all experiences.

With this program, we aim to:

1. To promote Children's interest in art, culture, science, help fill learning gaps, deepen academic knowledge, teach more effective independent learning, responsibility, help understand the value of education, provide knowledge about higher education opportunities, professional orientation, help prepare for matriculation exams.

2. Reduce Children's social isolation in society, promote their self-confidence, and help them (re)integrate into the education system, labor market, and living environment.

Step 4 - participation in introductory training, during which volunteers are given basic knowledge about the specifics and nature of working with Children.

Step 5 - a tripartite voluntary activity contract for 1 academic year is signed.

Step 6 - accompanying the volunteer to the organization hosting the volunteer, familiarizing with the designated Child and with the with the rules of the organization hosting the volunteer.
