Literacy AmeriCorps homework help @ the library

September 9, 2009

Literacy AmeriCorps Palm Beach County is a national service program that recruits recent college graduates to provide literacy services to adults, children and youth in our community. This "domestic literacy Peace Corps" contributes over 42,500 hours per year by tutoring and teaching, providing reading enrichment activities for children, participating in community service projects and recruiting community volunteers.

The program provides help with completing English and reading-based homework assignments, improving English literacy skills, constructing term papers, preparing for presentations and organizing/planning/keeping track of assignments.

This is the first year a Literacy AmeriCorps member will work at the Boynton Beach City Library.

Homework and tutoring services are available to all children and teens enrolled in school. Adult learners are also welcome for help with class assignments and ESOL.

The AmeriCorps member will be at the library Mon--Thurs. 10 AM to 6:30 PM. Tutoring will be available from 2:30 - 6:30 on those days. Appointments may be requested at other times by calling 561-742-6396.

Although students are welcome to bring any type of homework to work on during the help session, the AmeriCorps member specializes in reading and literacy-based assignments and can best assist with those subjects.
