Homework House

The mission of Homework House is to strengthen the Holyoke community by providing academic & social supports to low income children. Homework House is hosting three half-time Commonwealth Corps members who are serving as a Commonwealth Corps Teen Volunteer Coordinator to recruit and train teens as volunteers, a Commonwealth Corps Family/School Liaison to boost parent engagement through volunteering, and a Commonwealth Corps TechEd Specialist to improve our use of technology. Through their service, members are expanding our academic support programs, improving school engagement, and increasing parent engagement in student learning, in total impacting 225 children and parents/guardians. In addition, they are leveraging the resources of 150 volunteers, including the recruitment of an additional 35 teens and parents, who are acting as volunteer tutors, activity leaders, and positive role models.
