So you want to start a homework club… How to set up and run homework clubs (2007)

An Organizer's Workbook

The term “homework club” generally refers to an after-school program where tutors offer homework and reading support for a group of students on a regular basis. Frontier College, a national literacy organization, has been organizing such programs in every part of Canada since 1984 and this guide is based upon the knowledge gained through that experience.

The author notes that no two programs will be exactly alike. Tutors may work one-on-one with students or with a small group of students, or the homework club may have a “drop in” structure. Homework clubs can take place during the school day, after school, in the evening, or on the weekend.

The guide includes advice on selecting an organizing team; deciding on a structure for the club; registering students; recruiting and training tutors; and ensuring the sustainability of the program.

Appendices contain samples of forms, letters, agendas, and contracts that can be adapted to suit the needs of individual programs.
