The socioeconomic situation of families conditions their access to computers, the internet and digital devices. This harms their children’s performance at school and their educational opportunities.
At the socioeducational centres affiliated to the Pere Tarrés Foundation, children and young people have computers available to them so they can do their homework under the best possible conditions.
During lockdown at the beginning of the pandemic, the school performance of the children of one in three families in vulnerable situations deteriorated, as they could not keep up with their learning because of a lack of computers and/or an internet connection at home.
To counteract this, the education support area at the Pere Tarrés Foundation socioeducation centres, has been expanded. Here, children and young people can do their homework and resolve queries with the help of educators.
To help children do their homework, we need volunteers in the afternoons on a once-a-week or once-a-fortnight basis.
To help families complete online procedures, one or two mornings a week.
