Homework & Hang
Every Wednesday, 4:00-9:30 p.m. in the Corner and 3rd Floor
Wednesday nights at WCC are full of activities and excitement, and we want to make sure you’re here for it all! ”Homework & Hang” is an after-school and all-evening program that provides middle and high school students a place to go during their down time before, after, or between other programs. We will provide supervised spaces for a church-style study hall that include table space to do homework, power strips for device charging, cards and board games, and light snacks. Students will need to check in and wear their name tags, as they do with other programs, to participate. Please stay tuned for future communications about which locations will be utilized for Homework & Hang throughout the evening.
Please contact Ann Hunhoff or Mike Solberg if you would like to serve as an adult supervisor for Homework & Hang. We will put together a rotating schedule of volunteers, and there is opportunity for a paid position if you can commit to set hours on a weekly basis.
