Steps to Success

College students and volunteers are on hand to offer Homework Help every Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 3:30 pm to ten minutes before closing to assist middle school students (up to Grade 8) in organizing homework needs, locating appropriate resources, and strengthening reading skills. The free Homework Help service is offered September through May, except during school vacation weeks. The Steps to Success program is offered in conjunction with the Youth Bureau of the City of New Rochelle, Monroe College, and Westchester Library System.
