During Power Hour we have added a program called Project Learn. Through that we have created a game called Rainforest Adventure. There is a game board posted on the wall with a rainforest theme and the members’ game pieces are toucans. Each week they have to complete two activities given by the education director to be able to advance to the next level. They are given two lives and if the activities are not completed they lose a life. Points are earned for attending Power Hour to do their homework. Each week they receive tickets upon completion of the activities to be able to purchase something at the prize store or an ice cream. This is designed to get them to do educational activities, have fun doing it and be rewarded.

 
 
What is Power Hour?

A comprehensive homework help and tutoring program for all members aged 6 to 18 years. Power Hour provides members with the support, resources and guidance necessary to complete their homework – and start the school day with a sense of confidence and ability. As members complete homework assignments, they accumulate Power Points, which may be used to obtain Power Rewards – prizes, incentives. Power Hour is carefully structured to give Clubs several options for helping members achieve maximum success.
