Program Descriptions

Project Learn 

Project Learn is a Club-based initiative that reinforces the skills and knowledge young people learn at school. We do this in a variety of ways, including:

  • Homework Help: We encourage Club members to develop the daily habit of completing homework and class preparation in a safe, quiet, dedicated space with staff and volunteer support Monday-Friday.
  • Power Hour: Power Hour is a structured homework completion program. We run Power Hour for both youth and teens. We provide the space, supplies and adult support. Monday-Thursday, 5:30-6:30 p.m.
  • Open Homework Labs: In both our youth and teen programs, we offer Open Homework Labs at various times and days of the week. Club members come by and work on their homework and projects at their own pace. Monday-Thursday, 3:30-5:30 p.m.
  • Tutoring: Members in need of targeted academic support are matched with skilled volunteer tutors.
  • High-Yield Learning Activities (HYLAs): HYLAs are fun, academically beneficial activities that give young people an opportunity to practice or develop skills and behaviors needed for success in school.
  • Family Involvement: We check and connect with the parents, guardians and caregivers of our Club members on a regular basis to determine ways that we can further support their child's academic success.
  • Collaboration with Schools: Working in close collaboration with the schools that our Club members attend, we identify ways that we can better support members' academic progress during the out-of-school time they spend with us.

Be Great: Graduate 

Be Great: Graduate is an academic mentoring program that works with our Club members in grades 4-12. Club members are paired with an adult mentor and meet with them for at least one hour per week. Mentors use strengths-based strategies to assist their mentees in navigating obstacles that they may face in school and in life.

Additional Academic Opportunities Via Our Partners

We work with a variety of partners to provide additional educational opportunities for our Club members. These include the Museum of Flight, Seattle Children's' Museum, Seattle Public Library, Youth Tutoring Program, Seattle University School of Nursing, UW Carlson Center, Seattle Central Community College, Let's Read! and the Road Map Project.
