CCPL's free after-school Homework Help Services

Release date: 9/6/2017

Cuyahoga County Public Library's free after-school homework help services resume September 20th
Students in grades K-8 may receive homework assistance through Library’s Homework Centers and Homework Mentors programs

Since 2002, Cuyahoga County Public Library’s (CCPL) free after-school Homework Centers program has helped thousands of students in grades K-8 improve their grades and subject comprehension. Students who participate in the program receive homework assistance from trained tutors in language arts, math, reading, science, and social studies.

The Homework Centers program will be offered at 10 CCPL branch locations after school Monday through Thursday, beginning September 20th.

Last fall, CCPL expanded its after-school homework help services to 12 additional branch locations through its new Homework Mentors program. Trained mentors are available to provide students in grades K-8 with homework assistance for 2 hours after school, Monday through Thursday – no appointment necessary. Students in need of extra assistance with their homework may simply bring their assignments to the library, where they can receive help from a trained mentor.

During the 2016-2017 school year, CCPL's Homework Centers and Homework Mentors programs received more than 24,000 student visits combined. Ninety-seven percent of parents surveyed said their child's grades improved after participating in the Homework Centers program.

CCPL’s Homework Centers and Homework Mentors programs are made possible through the generous support of The Reinberger Foundation and individual donors. Complete listing of CCPL Homework Center and Homework Mentors locations HERE.
