Success4All was born in 2006 when founder, Caroline Afolabi-Deleu, realised the need for study and homework support in areas where children had no access to a computer, learning resources, low self-confidence and with little support from parents or peers. After engaging university students as volunteer tutors and training them in tutoring and befriending, Success4All started with our first Learning Hub.
Now, we run 8 Learning Hubs providing 18 sessions a week in venues across Newcastle. 386 children and young people are supported by the 195 volunteer tutors and 8 Learning Hub Coordinators trained by Success4All. Our Summer Schools, Easter Study Support Club and 9 Clubs have enabled young people to explore their extra-curricular interests such as coding, STEM subjects, geography, cooking, sports and gardening.
Our first Learning Hub was based in the Millin Centre, in the West End of Newcastle.
Our first Summer School was at Kids Kabin in the East End of Newcastle.
Birth of our West End Young Digital Artists Group. Keep up to date with them here: WEYDA – EUROSOLE
