Explore vida en HomeWorks
HomeWorks cree que una educación sólida es la base para un futuro exitoso. Trabajamos arduamente para crear un entorno en el que nuestros estudiantes estén motivados para aprender y perseguir sus pasiones académicas.
Los estudiantes adquieren un horario de estudio reglamentado y consistente y habilidades académicas y personales profundas para establecer metas a través de la instrucción de un maestro y sus tutores. También participan en un programa integral de acceso a la universidad que les ayuda a planificar su futuro.
Social Justice Learning Curriculum
At HomeWorks, growth extends beyond the classroom. Scholars took part in a dialogue series and antiracist learning curriculum challenging scholars to analyze life experiences through frameworks of social identity, power, and oppression, in order to identify passion areas in social justice. Our newly developed social justice learning curriculum is a comprehensive, full-year learning and service program, in which our scholars participate in four main components:
Internship Matching Program
During their junior and senior year, scholars are able to match with various internship opportunities within the community that relate to their curriculum of social justice. Through these matches, we hope to provide the junior or senior with relevant work experience as well as a fun opportunity to broaden their horizons.
A series on topics that prompt internal reflection, interpersonal navigation, external analysis, and social mobilization through frameworks of social identity, power, privilege, and oppression
Community Engaged Learning
Each scholar in the SJLC will have weekly volunteering/mentorships to one of many local grassroots and non-profit organizations, municipal and political bodies, local activists, or other service-focused spaces in and around Trenton, diving deeper into a social justice passion area they have developed, either prior to or during the SJLC, learning valuable leadership skills, and making an impact on their community.
Year End Capstone
Scholars will create a creative, individual (or small group) project to materialize the learning and service they have engaged this year through the SJLC
We shape our scholars to be leaders by providing opportunities for scholars to explore other interests. Here are some of the workshops we ran last year!
