IMPACT Homework Club @ Jacox Elementary
This program was started by The URC and is led by Joel Phillips, a teacher. The program is targeted towards second-graders at Jacox Elementary, a Title 1 school. Volunteer run the Homework Club helps students with their reading and math homework and offers mentoring opportunities. Homework time includes helping students read a passage, discussing what they've read to check comprehension and maybe some arithmetic. The time passes quickly, but the positive impact is lasting! Homework Club meets weekly with the children on Tuesdays or Thursdays.
The URC will train volunteers and help them get all background checks through theNorfolk Public Schools.
If you are interested in volunteering, sign up here and we will reach out to you regarding the details. The 2019 Homework Club will begin in October.
