Volunteer coaches will be provided an orientation to Library resources and training on how to ask children the right questions to best support their homework needs.
At each site, Homework Coaches will work alongside the After-school Homework Club Facilitators. It's a team effort!
Homework Coaches provide support and assistance to children in grades 3-8 who need a little extra help with their homework assignments. These activities will take place at the library’s After-School Homework Club sites.
Participating children will be assisted one-to-one or in small groups. Homework Coaches will provide clarity, direction and understanding of the child’s homework assignments. They will also promote appropriate library resources and materials.
Volunteers must be at least 18 years old, well-organized, and team players who can communicate effectively with children, parents, and Library personnel. They must be self-directed, culturally-sensitive, computer and Internet literate, and able to write clearly and concisely. They must have a knowledge of basic school subjects including reading, English, writing, science and mathematics.
Homework Coaches are positive role models for the children with whom they work.
Homework assistance is provided from September 2017 through May 2018.
