The Homework Club is a key component of programming at all seven Clubhouse locations and for all ages. Each Homework Club session includes a healthy snack and focused homework time where youth can access technology and get help from tutors and staff. The Homework Club delivers creative solutions to the challenges faced by many local communities, including working with community partners to overcome language barriers and increasing literacy through innovative techniques and collaborative partnerships (i.e. Public Library).


Homework Club is producing great results: 

- Membership has jumped over 85% in the last five years and the number of overall visits has increased by more than 114% 

- In 2016, 2507 members made 46,115 visits to the Homework Club 

- When surveyed, 94% of the youth reported that they plan to graduate from high school and 87% plan to attend post-secondary school (which is something many members never thought was even possible!)

Homework Club

What Members are saying about the Homework Club:

“I participate in Homework Club because there is no one to really help me at home.”

“I always do my homework on my own, but when I came to the Homework Club, I got the help that I need and that makes me comfortable with my studies.”

“The Homework Club helps me concentrate in school and on homework.”
