The Boys and Girls Club Tutoring Program is a service opportunity that happens every Tuesday throughout the school year.

Webb students provide Club students with one-on-one help with homework, paired reading, fun, and friendship. We meet after school on Tuesdays. Parent & teacher volunteers provide transportation to the Club, and we stay until 5:20 pm. This is an activity students can participate in as much or as little as they’d like throughout the school year. They can come every Tuesday (space permitting) before or after their sport season, or just once to try it out.

FIRST (​For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) was founded in 1989 to inspire young people's interest and participation in science and technology.
