Youth services at the Opportunity Center are delivered, primarily, by Hennepin County Library and EMERGE to give young people the support they need for learning, school, leadership, and career exploration.
Homework Help is a drop-in, after school Hennepin County Library program for K-12 that offers children and teens a free, safe, and welcoming space to master academic concepts, complete homework assignments, and build confidence and expertise in their learning.
Homework help tutors include neighborhood college students with expertise, lead tutors, and other staff members. The structure provides peer leadership and job skill development. Homework help surveys completed by students at the Opportunity Center show that one-on-one support from tutors is valued and a big reason they return to the program.
