Summary

Become a mentor of a first grader or primary school student from a foreign language family. You will work together on language skills and study skills.

Detailed description

What do you do as a mentor?

At Taal Doet Meer you can work as a language mentor for a primary school student or as a mentor in the School's cool project, a mentor project for first-year students. In February 2020, in collaboration with Taalschool Utrecht, we will start again with a group of students who are new to the Netherlands. This guidance focuses on pleasure in language and school, as well as on personal development. As a volunteer you have good contact with parents and where necessary you build a bridge between parents and school.


In practice:

You visit the family at home for about 1.5 hours a week. You take time to get to know the family. With a primary school pupil you will work with language in a playful way, for example by playing language games, practicing vocabulary and going to the library. In the guidance of a first grader you will work on reading pleasure, study skills and homework. Where possible, ask your parents to join the guidance; for example by playing a game together or planning homework. You and the parents contact the school to agree on the guidance. During the process you will be guided by a voluntary mentor coordinator and you can regularly exchange experiences with other mentors. You can also participate in relevant, in-depth workshops on topics such as refugee families or language development.


What do you have at home?

- You have an affinity with children, language and cultures;

- You are good at guiding and enthusing people;

- You are open to new encounters;

- You are eager to learn, independent and reliable;

- You are available for about two hours a week;

- You are willing to commit for a period of at least one year;

- You are willing to develop and participate in an in-depth workshop or training.


What do you get in return?

Through your efforts, you ensure that children make a good start at school in the Netherlands and in the first year of secondary education and can later participate in Utrecht society. After all, you need language to make friends, find a job, do your banking or do your homework. Meaningful work with a major social impact! At the same time, you get to know other cultures, you get a lot of enthusiastic Taal Doet Meer colleagues and you can develop through various appropriate training courses.

About Taal Doet Meer

Taal Doet Meer, with 1000 volunteers per year, ensures that Utrecht residents can participate in society. Learning the Dutch language is a common thread in our work. Language is necessary to find a job, talk to your children's teacher, go to the doctor, work with a computer or do your homework.

Voluntary language coaches offer language coaching and activation to men and women who do not have Dutch as their mother tongue. Our volunteer mentors support students with language and schoolwork. They receive extra support to make a good start in first year and when doing homework.

Our work benefits everyone involved: students get to know the language and society. Students perform better in school. Volunteers broaden their horizons, develop their social skills and contribute to understanding and cohesion within Utrecht society.
