Academic SUCCess programs
Providing Pathways to Success in the Academic World
Power Hour is an engaging homework help and tutoring program that encourages Club members of every age to become
self-directed learners. Members are able to take advantage of tutors, small group study sessions, and educational resources that are available during power hour. Tutoring and homework help, in every subject and grade, are available daily for every member.
Targeted subject programs aims to identify members who are having difficulty a specific area and provide the resources needed for them to succeed. Key programs like Math Club, Reading Club, College Prep, and Khan Academy allow members to receive targeted assistance in the subject areas they struggle with the most.
Through strong academic mentorship and enrichment activities, our members are able to find their love of learning. With the help of our Youth Development Professionals, our K-12th grade members are able to find the guidence and encouragement that young people need to improve their academics to eventually graduate from high school with a plan for the future.
Our tutors help every member, from those who are continuing to struggle academically to those who just need help with a single math problem. Our trained staff encourage members to seek help with needed, help their peers when appropriate, and continue to strive both in and out of the classroom. Targeted subject programs, like Writer's Workshops or Math Club, help members succeed where they struggle. SAT and ACT prep classes are also available.

"I like the Club because they help us with our homework. At school, sometimes the teachers are so busy and don't have time to help but we can come here after school and learn how to do everything. Then when I get home, I don't have to work anymore because my homework is already done!"

"I have the peace of mind knowing that he is in a safe place. I'm happy that he has a place where he can jump on a bus, get help with his homework and be engaged in so many different activities."

"The Club truly, in every sense of the word, saved my life. The Club gave me a sense of security and a roof over my head. We had a lot of gangs when I was young, and those who didn't want to be a part of that life could come here. Now, my kids attend the Club. It helped them with their SATs, College Prep, and how to study. The Club absolutely prepares every young person who wants to go to college."
