The Jusoor Homework Club works with in-school Syrian children at the Primary and Intermediate school levels to provide additional classes in hard sciences and English to help them keep up with their schooling. The children attend 3 hrs of morning or afternoon classes at our Beirut Centre before or after their regular public school classes, helping to provide the extra academic support they need to succeed in Lebanese public schools. The curriculum is focused on Maths, English, Physics, Chemistry, and Arabic, as well as homework support.

Key impacts 2019-2020:
This academic year Homework Club concluded in mid-March with the closure of public schools; however, despite the shortened program length, students on average showed double-digit growth in every core subject. The club operated at capacity this year, serving 280 students, and we hope to re-open this popular program for the 2020-2021 academic year.
Many students give positive feedback on this program, especially for science; they now understand their classes in school.
One such example is Rawda, who attended Homework Club at Jeb Janine earlier this year. “Because of the homework club, I now understand Science better and the classes at public school are clear to me. Before joining the homework club, I really struggled to understand them,” she shared.
Jusoor adheres to INEE minimum standards and actively participates in Education in Emergencies working groups at the country level.
