Free school support associations
Another option available to those who do not have many resources to dedicate to private classes are school support associations . There are many associations that were created in order to help needy students and their families.
Sometimes parents don’t know how to help their kids with school and can’t help them with homework every day. Hence, many associations have decided to participate in the learning of these disadvantaged children.
They generally do not make any profit and are free everywhere in Spain. Volunteers, who accompany the children in their homework or in their lessons, allow children from disadvantaged neighborhoods to be given the same opportunities as other children whose parents are more available to follow their school progress.
