About Schoolwork Support
During the regular school year
Register in: Mid-September and January
All of 826michigan’s programs are temporarily only offered virtually
What To Expect
Students bring unfinished homework or school assignments to each session and are paired with volunteers in a safe, supportive, learning environment. Through individualized support, students strengthen their academic engagement. The individualized attention of volunteers improves students’ self confidence and encourages them to be socially invested in a community of learning.
This is a homework-based program. If you’re interested in participating in 826michigan programs, but your student does not have homework regularly, please check out our After-School Writing Lab.
