Homework House is a non-profit ministry, independent of Foothill Community Church and located on our church campus. It is an after-school tutoring program for elementary through high school students.
Homework House’s mission is to establish and sustain neighborhood based learning centers in Azusa wherein at-risk children and their families are equipped to thrive academically, socially, and spiritually. They provide safe, welcoming environments for children to receive individualized tutoring and mentoring. The staff and tutors build lasting friendships with the neighborhood children and their families.
There are 4 basic ways to get involved with this award winning philanthropy.
Academic Mentors – Between September and May, tutors are needed who can provide one-on-one homework assistance to the same students one to two times each week (1.5 hour sessions). Tutors choose tutoring sessions based on their availability and desired age group.
Youth Mentors – Between September and May, mentors are needed who can guide small groups of high school students through grade-specific benchmarks and lead discussion based on our life skills daily lesson. There is a one-year commitment.
Reading Buddy – Summer Reading Buddies help students read in small groups, pose reading comprehension questions, and guide them through writing a reading summary. A “Buddy” also encourages students to enjoy and grow from reading.
Fun Friday Leader – On Fridays (September-May), Homework House offers elementary programming that will strengthen core moral values, character traits along with extra-curricular teen programming that will teach a new skill such as art, dancing, or sports.
