Looking for coaches for School's Cool!
Are you a difference maker?
Not all young people go through their school career with ease and pleasure. And not all young people dare to dream about a bright and promising future. As School's Cool you connect with a young person. You offer time and attention. You have a fresh look and a listening ear. And you encourage your young person to take action, so that steps are taken from dreams to action.
The effective ingredient for coaching is the click between coach and young person. In order to continue to make sufficiently strong, beautiful and powerful matches, JES is looking for volunteers who want to make a difference. So ... are you an 18-year-old frisk goggles and do you feel like and have the time to commit to a young person in the Leiden region or in The Hague for a period of 12 months?
We ask that you:
- are available for your younger one hour a week;
- that you participate in training and are open to guidance from JES;
- that you commit yourself to your younger person for 12 months. JES offers all its volunteers adequate training, careful guidance and challenging refresher courses
Is this about you? Then sign up! All volunteers at JES can count on adequate training and careful guidance.
"Regardless of the available financial resources, level of education and background, all children must have equal opportunities to develop and to develop fully".
Why does JES exist?
JES wants the talents of children to be fully utilized. We strive for equal opportunities and more equality in society. We want to increase the chances of youth development in Leiden and the region. In particular language development and socio-economic development; regardless of cultural or religious background.
Every child has the right to development. That is what JES stands for.
We think it is important that children:
- grow up in an environment that stimulates them in their development;
- make use of important facilities such as pre-school and early-school education (VVE) and the library;
- be well prepared to start school;
- can be supported and supervised during their school career;
- participate in social, cultural and sporting activities.
What does JES do?
JES thinks from the perspective of opportunities and possibilities and works from the ambition of equality. Professionals, students and volunteers build a bond with a family or a young person. They stand next to the participants and look to the future with them. The demands and needs of parents, children and young people are central.
JES offers a broader perspective on the future and more confidence in equity. Parents receive support and reinforcement in their role as educators and we offer young people support in discovering their interests and talents. By making connections within the Golden Triangle: at home, (before) school and neighborhood, JES wants to make a difference for the future generation. After all: a good home situation and a stimulating, social environment ensure that a child dares to follow his dreams.
How does JES do that?
Professionals, trainees and volunteers give time, space and attention to the participants. Support can consist of individual supervision or participation in group meetings. The JES programs focus on parenthood, upbringing, multilingualism and language and talent development. Each program focuses on a specific goal, whereby the question of the participant is always paramount.
JES uses proven and promising methods developed by universities, colleges and partner organizations. JES ensures the best local applicability.
JES requires a personal contribution for a number of programs. However, the personal contribution may never be a threshold to participate. If this is the case, we will talk to parents in search of a solution.
