Vill du hjälpa nyanlända elever på Skäggetorpsskolan i Linköping?

Just nu behövs en stor hjälp med de många nyanlända som har kommit till Linköping och framförallt Skäggetorp. För att hjälpa dessa elever att komma in i vårt samhälle och lära sig svenska försöker vi därför att hitta faddrar på Linköpings universitet som kan hjälpa till. Detta innebär att umgås med eleverna (2 elever per fadder) ca 1 gång i veckan (eller hur mycket tid och behov som finns), vilket kan vara alltifrån läxhjälp till en fika på stan. Andra lösningar går också att göra då ni t.ex. kan vara 2 faddrar på 3 eller flera nyanlända barn!
Vill du hjälpa till eller har du några frågor?
