Children’s Study Buddy

As a Study Buddy you will support the learning and development of a child or a young person who is affected by HIV and/or Hepatitis C. You will meet weekly for 1-2 hours to spend one-on-one time together. Sessions usually take place in a café or community space such as a library Together you can work on homework or development of relevant skills, such as developing the child’s motor skills by doing crafts or doing a physical activity. The sessions are creative and child-lead. This is a great opportunity if you would like to gain experience for working in education. Study Buddies help children build their confidence, develop a love of learning, gain new life-skills and improve their numeracy and literacy.

About Positive Help

Positive Help offers practical help to people affected by HIV and/or Hepatitis C in Edinburgh and the Lothians. The core services are delivered by a team of trained volunteers: Befriending for children and young people; Home Support (cleaning, de-cluttering, DIY, gardening, and other domestic tasks); a free Transport service, which helps people to get to and from medical appointments as well as support groups or local supermarkets; Study Buddies, a homework mentoring service for children; and telephone support for adults. We are a very small staff team, so volunteers really are the beating heart of Positive Help. Visit our website to learn more: https://www.positivehelpedinburgh.co.uk

Experience Required

Many of the children and young people we support have been affected by Adverse Childhood Experiences. Therefore as a Study buddy volunteer you will need to be kind and patient and see yourself as a positive role model for children and young people affected by HIV / Hep C – everything besides that we will cover in the training. You do not need to have any past experience working with children. if you have any further questions please contact us 0131 225 4766 [email protected]

Training Details

Our training covers a range of topics including: information on HIV and Hep C; stigma and discrimination; maintaining boundaries; child protection protocols and trauma informed approaches. All volunteers are required to complete a mix of in-person and online training with other volunteers. This is usually one full day at the weekend followed by four 2 hour sessions in the evenings. We will also provide you with First Aid training. Once you are matched with a child ,you will meet with the coordinator for a one hour support meeting every 6 months, however this can be more regular if you require. We also offer ongoing training and peer support sessions to enable you to fulfil your volunteering role with confidence! We are happy to provide references for you to help you into future employment or education.

Flexibility & Commitment

1-2 hours per week for 1 year

Location/Travel Details

The volunteer will collect the child or young person from their home. They will then go to a nearby café, library or community space to study together.

After each session you will complete a feedback and expenses form. You can claim money back for the cost of any activities, food/drink and public transport/fuel. You will then be reimbursed within a week of submitting the form.

YES Programme for Migrants & Refugees: 'Study Buddy' Homework Club Volunteers

Would you like to be a volunteer ‘study buddy’ at the youth and education services for refugees and migrant’s homework club, n.b. we are currently looking for english language tutors as well as tutors in maths, biology and physics..

Our Study Buddy Homework Club offers Separated Children Seeking Asylum or family reunified children and other migrant children a safe and supportive environment to study and to receive help with their school work. The young person typically brings in their homework or areas of work they need assistance with and the volunteers help them with their assignments as well as trying to help them understand the theories/ concepts of the particular subject. Most students request help with specific subjects, while others need more general help with English across the curriculum. It is important to remember that volunteers are not expected to be teachers and ‘know everything’.

Here is some more practical information about our Homework Club:

  • The students are generally aged between 15-19 years and are all separated children and young people in the care of the Tusla or they have join their families who already where here.
  • Most of them are still awaiting a decision on their asylum cases and are living in lodge homes or host families.
  • All of the students who use our service do so of their own accord. They sign themselves up and as a result are extremely motivated.
  • Our programme offers a safe and friendly environment for the young people to do their homework. It runs every Monday and Wednesday evening from 5-8.30pm.
  • Within these times students work with a volunteer generally on a one-to-one basis for an hour or so. The study session is always supervised by a CDETB staff member.
  •  We are located in the city centre reach.
  • Although help is needed in all the Leaving Certificate subjects, we find students are in particular need of help with maths, science subjects and English.
  • Before volunteers can start they must complete a confidential volunteer application form as well as a Garda Vetting application form This is normal procedure to comply with child protection guidelines.
  • While we would hope to match volunteers with a student as soon as possible there can sometimes be delays in matching the students’ requests with the volunteers’ skills. Generally we receive more requests from students as the year progresses, especially after the Christmas exams. We recruit volunteers on-going throughout the school year.
  • All of our past ‘Study Buddies’ have found this to be a very positive and rewarding experience. It is a great opportunity to meet students from all over the world, and in the process get to know about their countries and culture.

We look forward to hearing from you.

2023 Semester One Study Buddy registrations will open in April. Stay Tuned!

The Study Buddy Program is run by the Monash Student Association (MSA) with the aim to match like-minded students with each other to form a study group. Study groups may range from 2 to 5 students.

We find that peer to peer interactions generally decrease as students advance to higher levels. We hope that the Study Buddy Program serves as a platform for peers to meet and connect over shared subjects.

  • Enhance student learning and improve academic performance
  • Enable students to connect with like-minded peers
  • Encourage interaction with peers for studying

Who is eligible to sign up?

The Study Buddy Program is currently only open to Clayton-based undergraduates in the following faculties for Semester 1, 2022:

  • Science (First years only)
  • Information Technology
  • Engineering
  • Nursing and Midwifery 
  • Commerce - First Year
  • Engineering – First years only
  • Engineering – Aerospace
  • Engineering – Biomedical
  • Engineering - Chemical
  • Engineering - Civil
  • Engineering - Electrical
  • Engineering - Environmental
  • Engineering - Material
  • Engineering - Mechanical
  • Engineering - Mechatronics
  • Engineering - Resources
  • Engineering - Software

How the matching process works

  • Students sign up via filling out a Google Survey Form.The form includes questions about your particular units, personal study methods and goals. Please note that the form closes at the end of week 9 of Semester 1, 2022.
  • MSA volunteers match the students with like-minded peers to form study groups of 2 to 5 students.
  • If there is a match, we will be providing the email contact information of the other “study buddies” to students and allow them to contact each other.
  • If there is no match, we will inform you via email by the end of week 8 of the semester.

Please see our FAQ below for more information.

How large are the Study Buddy Groups?

They may range from 2 to 5 students for a particular Study Group.

What if my assigned Study Buddies do not end up contacting me?

As much as we like to enforce contact, we cannot do so. It is up to students to manage their respective meetings themselves. We will follow up with students to ensure that they have been matched and are studying together. If you are experiencing any issues with communicating with your Study Buddy, please fill out the ISSUES form in the resources list. The secretarial team will work with you to organise a new match.

What do I do if my assigned Study Buddy makes me feel uncomfortable?

We take careful steps to ensure the safety of all students. If you are experiencing any discomfort due to your Study Buddy, please fill out the ISSUES form in the resources list. If the matter is serious enough, we will report it to the relevant MSA staff. Otherwise, the secretarial team will work with the students to organise a new match, and the particular student will be black-listed and removed from the system.

What if I do not get a match?

The MSA Study Buddy team will organise data and sort out potential matches, if there are cases where only one person signs up for a particular unit, the person will be unfortunately rejected. Therefore, we encourage students to select multiple units and allocate preferences for ease of matching.

‘I want to only be paired with a high-achieving student’

We do not discriminate based on grades.

'Can I request a single-sex study group’?

You may request this in the ‘Additional Comments’ section of the Google forms Survey, however, this is not guaranteed as we are limited depending on who signs up for a particular subject.signs up for a particular subject.

Franklin Education Connection



Impacting a student's education experience.

Study Buddy Franklin Education Connection

Your time can make a difference to a student who needs help passing a spelling test. Your involvement can be the catalyst for an intriguing science project.

Study Connection, a program of Franklin Education Connection, began in 2005 as a collaboration between Community Involvement in Learning (CIL), Franklin College, Franklin Community School Corporation and local volunteers. Each year, more than 75 volunteers donate more than 3,000 hours of homework help and friendship to students Grades 1-8.

More students are on a waiting list. They need your help.


How Study Buddy Works

As a Study Buddy volunteer, you will meet with your student one hour per week. You collaborate with the child’s teacher and site coordinator on study goals.

Our Direct Connection Program allows Study Buddies who can’t participate after school to schedule a time during the school day to meet with their student.

Study Buddies come from all walks of life: college students, homemakers, working professionals, married couples, retirees and community volunteers. Study Buddies share a passion for helping young students succeed in school and life.

Study Buddy Franklin Education Connection

What is Involved

Tutor requirements.

You must be 18 years old or older.

You must have a high school diploma or GED.

Attend training and acquire necessary materials.

Agree to volunteer for one hour a week for one school year. However, some Study Buddies “share” students. In these cases Study Buddies alternate weeks working with their student.

More to Know About Being a Study Buddy

Our answer is: “ABSOLUTELY!”

Franklin Community Schools officials report that 93.7 percent of students in our program have shown improvement in at least six academic areas from the beginning of the school year to the end.

If there is something that comes up and you either have forgotten it or aren’t sure, just ask the school’s site coordinator or look it up with your student and learn it together.

Yes, you will be invited to an orientation meeting along with training sessions during the year.

It would be great if none of us ever had to miss, but in reality we do. Just explain to your student and let your school’s site coordinator know.

Becoming a Study Buddy is a one-year commitment, but the program has a volunteer return rate of 82 percent. It really is that rewarding!

Yes, as long as the child stays in the program. But, the goal is to get them up to or above their peers both academically and socially, so don’t be surprised if your student actually tests out of the program after a year or two.

Currently, the program works with second through sixth grades.

After a short period of trying a few things, you will either receive a new student or switch with another volunteer.

Yes. We spend time together at orientation, training sessions, the annual meet and greet and at a volunteer appreciation dinner at the end of the year. It’s a great time!
