Academic Success

Everyone has strengths...

We help kids reach their greatest potential by offering tutoring, homework help, plus access to technology, and college/career-readiness programs.

Academic Success

Our Program

 

  • Encourages engagement in learning at an early age
  • Complements regular school-day activities
  • Enhances academic performance
  • Fosters positive study habits and self-discipline
  • Provides guidance and resources to keep members on track as they transition through school and on to college or career

Clubs provide homework help and academic enrichment, mentors young people who are at risk for dropping out of school, offers resources so members can build their computer and technology skills, and guides members to explore potential careers and navigate the college application process.

Our members enjoy programs such as:

Power Hour

Power Hour helps Club members, ages K-18, achieve academic success by providing homework help, preparing for the next school day, tutoring and high-yield learning activities encouraging members to become self-directed learners.

Indiana Kids

This partnership between the Governor’s Office, Indiana Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives, and Indiana Alliance of Boys & Girls Clubs provides tutoring, career exploration, and education services to eligible children during after-school hours.

Link & Learn

By connecting Club members with a volunteer tutor for 45-minute sessions at least two days per week, Link & Learn provides focused help in areas where a student may need extra attention and mentoring.

Project Learn

To reinforce and enhance skills taught at school, Project Learn presents opportunities for engaging learning opportunities, such as leisure reading, writing activities, and popular games (Scrabble is a favorite!) that advance cognitive skills as they entertain.

Money Matters

Money Matters promotes financial responsibility and independence among Club members ages 13-18 by building basic money management skills. Participants learn how to manage a checking account, budget, save and invest. They also learn about starting small businesses and paying for college.
