The Boys & Girls Club proudly supports and implements a national homework help and tutoring program called Power Hour: Making Minutes Count. This program allows youth to extend their learning beyond the school day by participating in:
- Homework help
- Fun and interactive learning activities
- Tutoring for those who need more intensive help with specific subjects or skills
Research studies confirm that homework completion makes a difference in helping youth become more confident, happy and successful in school. Power Hour offers a structured time and place for Club staff and volunteers to help members complete their homework – and start each school day better prepared and with a sense of confidence and competence.
Plus, as members participate in the Power Hour program, they earn Power Points which are redeemable for incentive prizes and special privileges.
