Don't Miss the Final Homework Diners of the School Year
With temperatures in the 80’s and end of grade test studying in the works, the final countdown for weekly Homework Diners is taking place before we officially welcome summer. With a Community Market, one-on-one Resume Workshop, College Night, Spark Tank Fair and more, make sure you mark your calendars for upcoming Homework Diners in your community.

Celebrating 200 Homework Diners + Beyond!
Just a few weeks ago, during the week of April 7-13, 2019, we surpassed our 200’th Homework Diner with over 3,000 students, parents, teachers, school staff, and community members in attendance since we began. In the choice words of excitement from our President and CEO, “WooHoo!”
“You meet a lot of other kids and their parents or guardians here and you see how they’re working with their kids and you get to communicate with them on this same level and work together,” shared parent Mishelle Allen, who volunteers weekly at Erwin Middle. “Because there are more than homework problems, there are personal problems and health issues that you’ve both been through and you can help each other out,” her husband Gary shared. “It just builds a stronger community.”
