Help with Homework Assistance Program

Peoria, IL, - In response to the call for more effective homework assistance programs for low-income youth, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Peoria has the answer; Power Hour, a nationally recognized program supported by the Boys & Girls Clubs of America.

Power Hour: Making Minutes Count is an interactive, after-school homework assistance program for children ages 6 to 18 using adult staff and volunteers to supervise the completion of Club member's homework. Power Hour's long-term goals are to ensure that youth graduate from high school, pursue postsecondary educations and become life-long learners.

"We are grateful for the opportunity to continue utilizing such a high-quality homework assistance program like Power Hour," said Lesley Matuszak, CPO, Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Peoria. "So many of the children we serve simply do not have access to the resources necessary for successful homework completion, which is critical to their everyday academic success."

Through Power Hour, Clubs can continue their support and commitment to helping children reach the true "Power of their Potential".
