Homework & Activity Club

The overall aim of the Homework and Activity Club Project is to raise aspirations of the young people from Neighbourhood Renewal areas of Cornagrade and Kilmacormick 1.

The Homework/Activity Club:

  •  Gives the young people a sense of self-value/self-worth.
  •  Enables the young people to experience success through activity.
  •  Assists the young people to develop relationships with others through mutual trust and support.
  •  Develops responsibility for self and others through organised activities.

In addition to providing a space for the young people to complete their homework the project offers the young people access to materials and IT resources including e-mail and Internet.

The Homework/Activities Club provides a relaxed atmosphere where the young people are able to complete their homework and ask questions that they may not feel comfortable doing at school.  It is a welcoming and fun environment but we do have strict policies which the children must sign up to.
