With the need for out-of-school homework and schoolwork help at an all-time high right now, The John Ben Snow Memorial Trust threw their full support behind Boys & Girls Clubs of Mason Valley’s educational efforts.
The trust donated $10,000 to the Club’s Power Hour program, a daily program that aids and incentives youth to get their homework done. Thing place every day right after school to keep youth’s attention, kids and teens from five to 18 get help on their homework and schoolwork while earning points and prizes. The funding will go toward prizes, tutoring time and supplies needed to make sure Club members can stay on track with their grades.
“The learning and growth of youth in Northern Nevada is at a critical junction,” Travis Crowder, chief professional officer, said. “After a year and a half of distance learning, the hope is that we will all return to traditional and in-person learning for the next school year, and we’ll be there every step of the way for the transition back.”
Power Hour is one of the many programs offered at Boys & Girls Clubs of Mason Valley’s five clubhouses, with each program focusing on a specific piece of members’ road to success.
