General Description of Our Program:

We are a student-run organization, sponsored by the University of Georgia Honors Program, established in the Spring of 2006. The program is housed at the Thomas N. Lay Park Community Center within walking distance of UGA campus. There are at least two Head Mentors and a member of the Executive Board on duty every day to supervise and answer any questions. Each semester, the program is supported by an estimated 300 student volunteers. The majority of the kids enrolled attend Barrow Elementary and Clarke Central Middle School. Every weekday during the academic year, UGA students provide individual tutoring and mentoring for local students. By providing homework help and extended learning activities, sponsored by the University of Georgia Honors Program, Thomas Lay works to create an atmosphere that encourages enthusiastic learning and play as well as fosters genuine relationships.


Please arrive no later than 2:45 pm and head to the kitchen. The program will work as follows: each mentor will be paired up with a student to complete homework and reading. After finishing schoolwork, the students will have a snack and participate in our enrichment opportunity of the day. Our program runs until 5:30 pm. Also, please wear a mask upon arrival.
