Power Hour: Making Minutes Count
This wonderful National Program helps our Club members achieve academic success by providing homework help, tutoring and high-yield learning activities and encouraging members to become self-directed learners.
Power Hour has grown into one of our biggest programs here at the Illinois Valley Club! We have been so excited to see this program progress over the course of the school year – we have seen a positive change in not only the number of kids that are participating, but a rise in positive parent/teacher response and encouragement.
Power Hour has also made some unexpected things happen at the Club, without pushing it or promoting it, our older members started to help our younger members complete their homework, which we encouraged by giving “tutoring” points to our older kids.
We are proud of our kids who excel at learning and studying and we are proud of our kids who are just starting out in developing this passion – as adults we know that education and a love for learning can make all the difference in the world and we are excited to have the tools to help the youth in our community learn and grow!
