A noble leader answers not to the trumpet calls of self promotion, but to the hushed whispers of necessity.” 
― Mollie Marti

"Volunteers don't get paid, not because they're worthless, but because they're priceless."  ~Sherry Anderson

Volunteering at Homework Club supports our local community of children from TK-8th grade. We seek to help children learn by varying our learning approach to fit the children's need. Our environment is fun, supportive and seeks to build inquisitiveness and love for learning. Volunteers should have patience and provide positive support. Love learning that much? Become a volunteer at Homework Club! Homework Club meets at the Central Library on Mondays and Wednesdays from 3:30 p.m. - 5 p.m. Volunteers are asked to arrive by 3:15 p.m. and stay until closing. Long term volunteer commitment is appreciated as our program's success is built upon strong, personal relationships and a desire to see growth. New volunteers must complete an application and attend training orientation before they can begin tutoring. Training will be offered monthly beginning in August.
