The Mary House After School Program
Mary House has run its free After School Tutoring and Mentor Program since 1997. Serving up to thirty elementary-aged students at a time, we have a strong partnership with schools in the neighborhood that allows us to pick the children up from school and walk them to our site. Many of the students we work with live in homes where English is not spoken primarily, so we work with children to improve their reading, writing and comprehension skills.
We aim to provide a safe and nurturing environment where kids complete their homework, have access to help from tutors, and receive mentoring from DC high school and college volunteers.
The Mary House Summer Camp
The Mary House Summer Camp is a six week, full-day summer camp for kids who live at Mary House or are involved in our after school program. Our staff organizes different themes, games, and activities each week to provide an engaging, enriching summer camp experience.This year's summer camp will run from the end of June to the end of July.
We are always looking for donations and volunteers so we can provide a fun and educational experience for the kids in our program. If you would like to volunteer your time or donate supplies please fill out our Volunteer Interest Form.
