Conviven Timetable

As of October 2012, the volunteers currently at the center run classes on the following schedule.
  • On Mondays and Thursdays at 3.30 and 4.30 PM: English classes for children in primary school children.
  • On Tuesday and Thursday mornings at 10 and 11 AM: academic support in English for a small group of middle school aged children.
  • Mondays and Thursdays from 2:30 to 3:30 PM: art classes for primary school children
  • Thursdays from 2:30 to 3:30 PM: music classes for primary school children

We will also be starting a sports program on Wednesdays. Each class has between 6 and 12 children, depending on the day and time.

We are always happy to start new classes if someone comes with good ideas and is willing to run and organise the class. Continuity in terms of timing usually makes organization easier, especially for bringing in students, so we encourage volunteers to work around the schedule we have already set up. We ask that anyone who would like to teach a class be able to commit to Conviven for at least three months in order to be able to develop a relationship with the children.

The center has many other things going on like photography, computer classes, mirco banking and music lesson. These are all run by long term volunteers or teachers at the center, but if you are interested in working with any of these subjects please let our volunteer coordinator know and we would be happy to have your help. See our article on what you can do at Conviven if you would like to see what else you can get involved in.
