FLEMINGTON, NJ – Students from various local schools are joining to help younger students with homework and act as mentors as they navigate through school life.

It’s part of a new program called Homework Helpers, organized by CTeen of Hunterdon.

The breakthrough project creates a broader sense of community, forges friendships and helps develop tomorrow’s leaders. It was inspired by CTeen leader Zach Mraz of Flemington, and built on the premise that there is no better way to grow than to give from your own time and capabilities to others.

The Homework Helpers program model is endorsed by rabbis, teachers and educators across the globe. An adult will be present to monitor and oversee the program.

Homework Helpers takes every Thursday, from 4 to  6 p.m. at the Hunterdon Youth Lounge, located at 35 Fulper Rd. here. All high school-aged teens are encouraged to volunteer, and any middle school student in need of homework assistance is welcome attend for homework help and socializing.

CTeen of Hunterdon is a program by Chabad of Hunterdon for local teens geared towards providing a platform where teenagers can learn and experience true leadership — a group run by teens, for teens —and a forum to create community initiatives and be active in humanitarian work. The group, now led by Directors Meir Lerman and Avraham Posner, has social gatherings, and fun educational workshops. CTeen has clubs at many local high-schools and is actively seeking additional schools that may be interested in starting their own clubs.

The next event for CTeen of Hunterdon will be Passover with CTeen, on Sunday, March 25. Teens will gather to make their own authentic Passover matzah and make Passover care packages for children in Africa. 

JewCrew, CTeen’s 7-8th grade group, will be holding a Mock Seder on March 25, where attendees will also be able to create not only their own authentic Passover matzah, but their very own Afikomin bags.

Those who are interested in learning more about CTeen and its affiliate programs can visit the website, send an e-mail, or call 908-238- 9002 for more information.
