HRSI Calls for Volunteers for New Tutoring Program

February 24, 2015

The Human RightS Initiative (HRSI) at CEU seeks volunteers to join their two newly established programs that aim to benefit pupils at the Miklos Zrinyi Elementary School.

English Coaching Program (ECP)

Participation is open to all members of the CEU community who will go to sessions in pairs (one Hungarian speaker volunteer per pair). The main goal is helping kids with foundations, such as basic vocabulary and everyday phrases.

Social Sensitivity Training (SST)

Due to language barriers, this project is currently open only to members of CEU who have a working knowledge of Hungarian. The program will cover topics related to identity, stereotypes, prejudice and tolerance.

The sessions for both projects will be held after school on Thursdays starting in mid-March, from 1 p.m. and 2 p.m. depending on the children’s schedules.

Note: It is possible to participate at only one session.

Details and the exact content are to be developed by volunteers, with the support and supervision of HRSI, at a meeting  in late February, prior to the start of the program (exact date to be arranged after the application deadline).

To apply, send an email to hrsi@ceu.hu or baranyad@ceu.hu indicating in which program you want to participate, no later than February 27.
