HOLYOKE – Homework House of Holyoke, a ministry which offers educational help to at-risk children, is seeking volunteers for its programs.
The Holyoke program has two locations, Our Lady of Guadalupe Parish Hall on Chestnut Street and Immaculate Conception Parish House on North Summer Street. Both program sites are easily accessible off Route 391.
Homework House is a nonprofit afterschool program, serving students in kindergarten through sixth grade from the Holyoke Public Schools. The focus is on helping economically disadvantaged children effectively complete their homework, as well as work on remedial skills in reading and in math.
The program runs Monday through Thursday from 3:15-5:15 p.m., and volunteers are needed on any of those days. Those interested in volunteering can contact Christie at 413-887-2012 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
