The Immigrant/Refugee Homework Club

The Immigrant/Refugee Homework Club is a joint partnership between RPCHC and Frontier College.

Students are primarily new immigrants who live in the catchment area. The homework club provides students with coaching and tutoring to support their school work. It is a forum for students to get ahead academically, as well as to increase their self-confidence. This program also has an adult literacy component where parents can receive tutoring help as well.
