When the school day ends, Homework Help libraries become collaborative, lively places where youth study with adult tutors, work independently on school projects, and help one another with English translation and reading comprehension. Homework Help serves over 1,200 young people every year; with over 50% of participants attending at least once a week.
Hundreds of Volunteers
Nearly 20 lead tutors and 250+ volunteers offer rigorous academic tutoring, helping students in multiple subjects like English, math, and science. The majority of our students are first or second-generation immigrants, many from East Africa. Our tutors play a crucial role in helping them overcome cultural and linguistic barriers to succeed in school.
