Support for Coaches
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!
Duties & Qualifications
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 any of the library’s five 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.

They must be self-directed, culturally-sensitive, computer and Internet literate, and able to write clearly and concisely.
