The homework club is a fun and dynamic environment and was the first program developed by Jesuit Social Services and has run continuously since September 2004. The Homework Club program is run at the Flemington High Rise Estate where there is a high population of people from the Horn of Africa region. This community is primarily made up of Somali and Eritrean people, along with Oromo, Sudanese and Ethiopian people. The Majority of this community members arrived in Australia within the past 10 years, as refugees and migrants, seeking a better future for their families.
The Homework Club is open for primary and secondary school students on Thursday and Wednesday nights 5-7pm.
Purpose of the Homework club is to;
•support parents who are unable to assist their children with homework and schooling subject due to English being their second language and lack of knowledge about the Australian schooling system.

•reduce school dropout ratio in students
