Homework Help is an after-school tutoring program that links McGill students with high school aged students from the Kahnawake Mohawk community on the southwest shore of St-Lawrence river. First Nations youth are paired with a McGill student based on the needs of the youth and the area of knowledge of the McGill student.
The program provides high school students the opportunity to improve in their studies, and an opportunity for McGill students to experience a First Nation community and the issues faced by Aboriginal youths, creating a bi-directional knowledge exchange. The volunteers give between 30 to 60 hours each per semester to the program. Homework Help aims to break down barriers to access to education while encouraging First Nation students to rethink the possibility of post-secondary education.
