Help a Child Succeed


Want to make a real difference for a student in grades 1 through 8? Then become a Homework Zone Coach at the Martin Luther King Jr. Library. This volunteer opportunity is open to teens (must be currently enrolled in High School) or adults.

You are available on Tuesdays from 3:30 PM to 5:30pm and you are be able to commit to 2 hours per week for at least one academic semester (Fall and/or Spring).

The Homework Zone is an after-school program designed to help students with their homework and subject specific assignments (for example a paper about a famous person). You will build confidence and coach skill building in students as they successfully complete their assignments.

If you enjoy working with elementary school age youngsters and you are comfortable helping with math homework and other academic subjects this is a great opportunity.

Teens - this is a great way to fulfill your community service requirement assuming your schedule permits and you are currently enrolled in high school. Adults (18 years plus) must complete a background screening via Live Scan.
