All Opportunities

Virtual After School Club Facilitator

We are looking for an adult volunteer to join HARCA staff to deliver fun and interactive games. You will first shadow a few sessions and build a relationship with the group. The volunteer will then take lead on delivering and playing fun and interactive games with the participants.

The volunteer will need to log in to Zoom, ideally via an ipad/laptop/computer (as opposed to a phone), so the maximum number of participants can be visible on screen at all times.

The club is for children aged 6-11 years old – Games must be suitable for these ages.

The live Zoom sessions will be during 3.30pm – 5.30pm, every Tuesday.

Staff will support you with the planning games for each session.

A schedule will be created – a month planned games in advance but can be altered as an when needed.

Volunteer can deliver games through using zoom screen share.

Games ideas that the children may be playing include: Hangman, quizzes, word bluff, scavenger hunt in the house, music bluff, music bingo, and freeze dance.


The volunteer must have a reliable internet source, access to Zoom, willingness to keep their camera on during the sessions and would preferably access the workshops through a laptop/desktop/ipad, as opposed to a phone.

You should have a positive attitude, show enthusiasm in your delivery, patient (we know zoom has its challenges!) and a friendly approach with the group.
