Afterschool Homework Clubs
Assist elementary-aged children in two neighborhoods with homework completion
About this program
What is Homework Club
Homework Club provides a safe and enriching environment for elementary school students to complete their homework. Offered at no cost to participants, the After School Homework Clubs operate on the school district calendar year (September-June). The club meets four afternoons per week for two hours per day. Coordinated and directed by the Youth Services Manager, the program is staffed primarily with trained area college students. This leadership provides a wonderful mentoring connection for these students and communities with individuals in higher education. A variety of volunteers from Carlisle High School, Dickinson College, and the community help to provide further support and tutorial services. As an incentive for regular attendance, good behavior, and homework completion, students earn holiday prizes and field trips. Additional rewards are given for good report cards.
Who it is for
Children in grades 1-5 living in Grandview and Memorial Park neighborhoods.
During the school year, each site meets Monday-Thursday directly after school until 5:30 p.m. In addition to homework assistance, the program aims to provide additional opportunities for growth in math, reading, and writing skills. Each day, the children are offered a healthy snack and an activity that ranges from group games and art projects to life skill lessons focused on teamwork, respect, and conflict resolution.
Limited to 16 students, registration is required by calling 717-243-3818.
