The Children of Holyoke Need YOU!
Do you know that you are good with kids or think you might be? Do you like to have fun and learn at the same time? Are you patient and kind? Have a special skill? Want to make a difference?
Homework House of Holyoke is looking for tutors for our programs. We have two locations, one at Our Lady of Guadalupe Parish Hall on Chestnut Street and one at Immaculate Conception Parish House on North Summer Street. Both programs are easily accessible off of Route 391.
Our program is a non-profit afterschool program, serving students Kindergarten through 6 th grade from the Holyoke Public Schools. Our focus is helping economically disadvantaged children effectively complete their homework, as well as, work on remedial skills in reading and in math. Additionally, our students benefit from the mentoring and excellent academic example set by their tutors. Our program runs Monday through Friday from 3:00 to 5:00 (with Fridays being our "Club Day"...here is where those special skills come in!) and we are in need of volunteers/tutors any of those days. Our tutors generally come one or two days a week, whichever fits their schedule.
