Teen programs we fund
Sam Dratch Teen Homework Center
Teens can get free in-person help with homework and other school projects from certified teachers. Students in grades 6 -12 will receive assistance with all subjects including homework, projects, test prep, and encouragement with their studies.
Art Classes and Lectures
Teens and tweens will use different mediums to discover their own creativity through art lectures and classes where they will be able to make a unique piece of art to take home.
Socialize with fellow clubbers and talk about Young Adult books in this meetup just for teens. All books are available in our digital library on the Hoopla app.
SAT Prep and College Prep Workshops
Through a partnership with the Path to College Fellowship, teens in grades 9 – 12 can prepare for the SAT with an expert tutor covering math, reading, and writing. In the College Prep Workshops, they will learn everything to know about getting ready for college, including the application process, financial aid, test scores, and more.
Teen STEM Programs
Teens and tweens can sharpen their technology and coding skills through STEM-based activities, like Sphero, SnapCircuits, littlebits, and more. Students can learn these vital science skills while socializing with their fellow teens.
