Homework Helpers is a free community program where local High school students volunteer to assist middle school students with their homework. The idea was initiated by the Cteen youth group, lead by teen president Zachary Mraz and Rabbi Avraham Posner.
Growing on a weekly basis the teens are proud of their work and have recruited their friends to become volunteers. Parents love the opportunity to have the extra help with their children’s schoolwork, as well as the precious time it frees up in their schedule.
The program takes place every Thursday from 4-6PM in Flemington, NJ. All children are welcome to join both as tutors and students. The teen tutors are strategically paired with the students to maximize the skills of the tutors and best fill the needs of the students. There is always a need for tutors who can assist, regardless of their academic level or preferred subjects. Homeworks helpers is adult supervised and light snacks and refreshments are served.
