About this program

What is Homework Club

YWCA Carlisle’s After School Homework Club programs provide safe, interactive spaces for students to complete homework, improve reading skills, receive healthy snacks, and engage in specialized STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics) programming. Our Homework Club programs aim to equip students with successful academic and personal skills through a student-centered learning approach, by offering character development opportunities, and in partnering with local college campuses for community mentorship.

Who it is for

YWCA Carlisle welcomes students in Kindergarten through 5th grade to participate at the Grandview Court location and the LeTort Elementary location (for LeTort Elementary students only).

Program schedule

Beginning on Monday, January 28, 2019, our spring program will meet Monday through Thursday from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. We request that all students are picked up by 5:30 p.m. Our program schedule allows for snack time and free play, character and skill building lessons related to a weekly theme, student-centered learning initiatives through individual homework assistance and group activities, and enhanced opportunities through special programming in science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics (STEAM). The fall program culminates in a field trip activity for the students on Thursday, April 25, 2019. YWCA Carlisle Homework Club programs follow the Carlisle Area School District calendar and the Dickinson College calendar; parents will be informed regarding the Homework Club monthly schedule. Homework Club will be closed the following dates during the spring session: Feb. 14, 2019, Feb. 18, 2019, Mar. 11, 2019 through Mar. 14, 2019, Apr. 18, 2019, and Apr. 22, 2019.
