Power Hour Volunteers assist Club staff in executing the Power Hour program. Power Hour enables Clubs to provide extra attention and focused assistance to at-risk members and those in need of motivation and direction. Volunteers serve as role models, providing guidance not only with homework assignments, but also with organizational and critical thinking skills. Perhaps most importantly, volunteers encourage and inspire members.
