Education

The Club is dedicated to promoting high graduation rates and access to secondary education among our membership. Education is paramount for our members to forge successful futures, and our homework assistance program, Project Learn, provides free academic enrichment to qualifying students in grades 1 through 5 each weekday in the North Penn, Souderton Area, and Wissahickon School Districts.

Education

Our strategy is based on research that shows students are far more likely to succeed in school when they arrive at school with homework completed, and prepared for the next day’s tasks and tests. We offer homework help each day to 195 children enrolled in Project Learn, and emphasize parent involvement and collaboration between Club and school professionals as critical factors in creating the best after-school learning environment for Club members ages 6 to 18. The Club gratefully acknowledges North Penn United Way for their support of Project Learn.

Project Learn

For students grades 1 through 5, Project Learn takes place Monday through Friday after school. In addition to daily homework assignments, children will study for their upcoming tests and complete learning activities each day.
