The Homework help program will start in 2016 and will be comprised of Junior and Senior mentors. Session will be held at our new Fellowship Community Service Center. Tutoring/Homework help will be a program structured around one-on-one help for middle school students with the intention of giving children safe, academically supportive after school activities. This 12wk program allows for our mentors to volunteer two hours of their time, once a week with the same student, forming a mentoring bond and helping their student to develop and improve their basic literacy skills.
Mentor volunteers spend these structured two hours, weekly, with the same student. In this consistent, supportive relationship, volunteers serve as positive adult role models, while helping their student foster a love of literacy and learning. During this time, mentors will be use student current homework assignments and book materials as bases for academic study. Mentor will use a variety of strategies and methods to engage and cultivate student to learn. Student-mentor volunteer pairs will be engaging in conversation, have fun and learn about together about each other.
The students range in grade from 6th through 8th grade. Volunteers are trained in content and are provided ongoing support by YEMBA and FNP staff to ensure a rewarding experience for both mentor and student.
