What is Power Hour?

Power Hour is a designated time for our members to complete homework, receive help, and engage in educational activities in our Education Center. We partner with the University of Washington and Shoreline Community College to provide tutors and volunteers to assist our members. Each member is required to attend Power Hour M-TH where they receive points that can be cashed in at our monthly Power Hour store. Members learn money management through this fun and interactive reward system for homework. Don't miss out on this integrative program designed to help your child learn in a safe and fun environment!
