FRAMINGHAM – The Framingham Homework Center hosted its first-ever environmental awareness fair today, November 24, at the main Framingham Public Library.

The guest speaker for the two-hour event was State Rep. Maria Robinson.

The fair included the Framingham High School Environmental Awareness Club, to MetroWest groups like 350 MetroWest, Transition Framingham, Sustainable Framingham, and the Framingham Earth Day Festival Committee.

But attendees could also stop by the Stearns Farm table and learn about its CSA program or make recyclable crafts with members of the homework center’s youth advisory board.

The Homework Center offers free tutoring and homework help for Framingham students, in all grades from kindergarten through high school.

The Center is open Mondays through Thursdays 2:30 to 5:30 p.m.

Tutoring takes place at the Homework Center Program’s base of operations at the main Framingham Library on Lexington Street.

A Youth Advisory Board, with representatives from middle and high school students, helps director Judy Gatlin in running the Center.

The Youth Board also plans and facilitates events, that raise awareness of both the Center and academics in Framingham. The board holds the annual Middle School Spelling Bee and an essay contest.
