Take Advantage of the Homework Club Program
Somali-Canadian Cultural Society runs an important Homework Help offered to boys and girls in grades 3 to 12 who require academic support and would benefit from one-on-one homework mentoring with a caring youth volunteer. The Homework Club meets for two hour per day (Monday to Thursday) after school from September to June every year. This service is open to all Canadians who come for help.

The program is for students ranging from grades 1 to 12 and is run four days a week, from Monday to Thursday (6:00-8:30pm.). The homework help program is a volunteer based one run by Somali and non-Somali volunteers.
Knowledge & Skills
Usually parents bring their children to the Society’s center, where they are assisted by the volunteers. In fact, the program equips the students with extra knowledge and skills in relation to their school subjects and work.
Parents whose children regularly attend the program have already realized the positive impact of the program and are appreciating of the services their children receive. Somali-Canadian Cultural Society runs the Homework Help Program in partnership with Big Brothers Big Sisters Boys and Girls Club.
In addition to the weekly routine activities, the homework program students receive other skills aimed at enhancing their creativity and academic programs. Recently, DiscoverE, a University of Alberta student-delivered initiative, has given science sessions to the some of the students. They learned a lot and enjoyed the participation.
A statement of the DiscoveryE initiative reads: “We focus on fun, accessibility and mentorship to deliver programs about engineering, science and technology.”
