Power Hour: Making Minutes Count

A comprehensive homework help and tutoring program, POWER HOUR is designed to raise the academic proficiency of Club members ages 6 to 18. We offer Power Hour during the school year Monday-Friday from 3 to 6 pm.

It is encourages young people to view homework as an opportunity to learn to work independently, successfully complete projects on time and feel positive about their school accomplishments. Unlike assignments done in class, Power Hour work is conducted in a non-threatening and fun after-school environment using “Homework Helpers,” adults or older students who supervise completion of a Club member’s homework.

Opportunities for Continued Learning.

The aim of Power Hour is to help members with homework completion, but the program also offers other learning experiences for those members who have finished their work for the day. When members have completed their homework assignments, they have a choice to do other activities within the Club, or to continue their learning – and earn more points – through leisure reading, completing worksheets or engaging in high-yield learning activities.
