Homeworks Trenton, a mission partner of Nassau Presbyterian Church, is a non-profit charitable organization dedicated to providing free after-school and residential support for marginalized high school girls in the Trenton public school system. For more detailed information, please see its website: www.homeworkstrenton.org.
Homeworks is asking for volunteers to tutor their high school scholars (9 freshmen, 1 junior and 1 senior) in high school level math (including pre-calculus), English, science, and history (particularly US history). The tutoring is done late afternoon (3-4:30pm for 1 Junior) or the evenings (7-8:30pm for all other scholars) four nights a week at their facility located on the main campus of Rider University in Lawrenceville, N.J.

Donating Books and Snacks
Homeworks is also trying to build its own library to supplement and enhance the learning opportunities and environment for its scholars. They are currently looking for used high school textbooks, study aids for collegiate entrance examinations and other standardized tests, and books by and about girls and women of color.
They are also looking for snacks for scholars to eat after school, specifically dry snacks that do not expire (cheese-its, cheetos, lays, cup noodles – chicken, sun chips, granola bars, popcorn, fruit snacks, takis, poptarts, velveeta microwavable mac and cheese, apple sauce) and drinks (ex: Caprisuns, Hawaiian Punch).
Anyone who is interested in donating any of these snacks, please go to the website, www.homeworkstrenton.org and complete the In-Kind Donation form which can be found under the ways to give, donate tabs.
