Dixon Community Services operates a Home work Club for students residing around the Dixon/Kipling corridor. The program runs during the school year, beginning in September and ending in June. The program accommodates 25 students of mixed gender between the ages of 8 years and 12 years and special priority is given to students from families with low income. The Home work program places special emphasis on assistance in the area of Math, Science and Reading. The Home work Club operates 3 evenings a week, from 5.00pm to 7.00pm.
The current program coordinator is a qualified teacher with an Ontario College of education certification and there are 4 university student volunteers assisting in the tutoring. Parent volunteers also take turns to chaperone the students and help at the club.
Dixon Community Services dose not charge the students any fees.
The Home Work Club is funded in part courtesy of the Longest yard Restaurant of Toronto.
