Success or failure as a human being is not a matter of luck, circumstances, fate or any of the other tiresome old cliches. Those are only excuses.

After School Homework Assistance Program The primary program of the Wayne Barton Study Center is our homework assistance. This is an after-school program, whereby students work on their personal homework assignments in an environment that is conducive to learning, and seek skilled help as needed with their homework.

As part of the program, we also provide each student with a light meal and organized recreation such as basketball, music lessons or dance. We are open every school day from 3:00 PM, when the high school students begin to arrive, until 7:00 PM.

This program has received extensive support and cooperation from the Palm Beach School District - from the Superintendent of Schools on down - where our efforts serve as a perfect extension to their academic programs.

Volunteer Positions Available Teaching Assistants Our major program at the Center is homework assistance. We have middle school and high school students who work on their homework as soon as they arrive. High school students generally come in at 3 PM, while middle school students arrive at 4 PM. Our volunteers help students with assignments in math, English, science or other major subjects. Homework assistance is provided 5 days a week, whenever school is in session.

Athletic and Fitness Coach A part of each daily program is recreation. At the center that means a variety of activities such as physical fitness, basketball, dance, etc. Our volunteers serve as coaches for these activities. These recreation programs are run at the Center from 5 to 7 PM.

Food Preparation and Service Every evening we serve a light meal for our students. We need people to help prepare and serve the food. Preparation is often done in the mornings and early afternoons. Meals are served around 5:00. In most cases the cooking is done between 3 PM and 5 PM.

General Help In addition to those who work with our students, we need volunteers to assist with office work, the library and field trips. Depending on the type of help, we can use volunteers from 9 AM until 7 PM when the center closes for the evening.
