Homework Clubs

The Homework Clubs provide an opportunity for children to achieve their greatest potential both socially and academically. We provide free, safe, well-supervised homework support for school age children living in high-need communities. Over 100 children are served annually in these neighbourhood and school-based programs.

About the Program
Macaulay Homework Clubs offer children in high need communities a unique blend of physical activity, academic and social supports. Many of the children are referred by teachers because of an identified need.

Macaulay operates 4 Homework Club locations. Each location operates 3 days per week with approximately 20 children in attendance. The program runs for 3 hours each program day throughout the school year.
