The information on this page is subject to change without notice as we continue to put together the details of the program.
Homework is usually not enjoyable and it can be difficult for parents to help, as they may not understand the subjects or the way a lesson is taught.
Our After School & Homework Help Program is designed to provide a place where youth can obtain support with a subject (language, math and science) and their homework from older high-school students that excel in the related subject, operating in a safe space and with the reward of some fun and engaging games of outdoor tactical laser tag (that may also be a great physical activity).
Our Peer Tutors are Grade 11 and 12 student volunteers that excel in a specific subject (with grades exceeding 85%).
The Peer Tutor will do their best to help clarify any lessons or homework that a Student Participant has, providing them with support where necessary.
Once a Student Participant has completed their homework or received the lesson support, they will be rewarded with unlimited game play (which includes: tactical laser tag, sports and board games).
Student Participants will play these games with other Student Participants and Peer Tutors.

An after school tutoring program that’s really good can turn the aimless hours after school into productive learning time. Of course, that’s a big advantage, especially for kids who struggle in academics.
