Homework Zone (HZ) is an after-school mentoring program connecting McGill University student volunteers with elementary school students in under-served neighbourhoods of Montréal. McGill students volunteer in schools from the Lester B. Pearson and English Montréal school boards.
How HZ Works
At HZ, we create an oasis for students where they can challenge themselves and nurture positive relationships within the school environment. The first half of each 90-minute HZ session is dedicated to academic support (ie; homework completion, problem solving, reading), with the second portion focused on imagination-based and academic enrichment activities or workshops offered by McGill students or community groups that focus on creativity, expression and building relationships.
