The Generation Homework Club is a free after school program for elementary students in Grades 4–7 that provides assistance with homework and fun activities.
The program is run after school out of local schools and libraries. Many youth and young adult volunteers have become role models and community leaders as they learn tutoring, communication, leadership, organization, mentorship, conflict resolution, time management and teamwork skills. Registration opens each fall and goes through until the end of the school year in June.
This wonderful effort is a joint venture of Southeastern Louisiana University and Livingston Parish Schools.
Teacher candidates from SLU fulfill class requirements by assisting our students.
The Tutoring and Homework Program focuses the efforts of teachers on the diagnosed academic needs of students and harnesses the energies of tutors and learning assistance staff to reinforce the teachers’ efforts.
The relationship that develops between tutors, teachers and students provides the kind of guidance, support and inspiration necessary for their future success.
Also, it gives our student and adult tutors a rewarding opportunity to provide their time and academic expertise to others in need.
The tutoring and homework program has two main objectives: 1.
The tutoring and homework program targets our underachievers whom we often lose due to their lack of success.
The tutoring and homework program gives students an opportunity to do homework, use computers, get help and/or study in a pleasant, well-supervised environment.
