School on Wheels has been incredibly fortunate to have worked with AmeriCorps VISTA (Volunteers in Service to America) members throughout the past three years. These volunteers have selflessly assisted in launching new programs, developing processes, streamlining technology and building the capacity of the organization.  They have collectively volunteered over 20,000 hours and have help raised tens of thousands of dollars to further the School on Wheels’ vision of breaking the cycle of homelessness through education.

As we complete our term with AmeriCorps, we would like to thank Nick Betzner, Alex Keys, Samantha Breeling and Shalyn Getz for their exceptional year of service to School on Wheels and recognize the impact they’ve achieved!  We wish Alex and Nick well as they leave School on Wheels for other opportunities.

We are thrilled to announce that Samantha Breeling and Shalyn Getz are joining School on Wheels as staff members.  As the organization’s Volunteer Coordinator, Samantha will be responsible for managing volunteer programs, communication and trainings.  Shalyn will be working as the Programs and Communications Specialist, providing programmatic support, serving as a Program Coordinator at one tutoring site and creating content for social media.

Please join us in thanking all of our VISTAs and welcoming Samantha and Shalyn to the School on Wheels team!
