Together WE Can Break the Cycle

School on Wheels values a diverse and inclusive culture that represents the students, families, and community that we serve. We are committed to providing an environment that encourages, supports, empowers, and celebrates the diverse voices of our students, families, volunteers, and staff. By embracing different ideas, perspectives, and backgrounds we will continue to cultivate future leaders through education and break the cycle of homelessness in our community.

Inclusion and Collaboration

We believe to break the cycle of homelessness through education, we must create an environment where all people, from all walks of life, are valued and included. When recruiting staff, volunteers, and community partners we welcome and encourage the unique perspectives, life experiences, innovation, and individual differences that shape us through our education, opinions, cultures, age, race, ethnicity, languages, gender identity, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, disability, religion, veteran status, and beliefs. By embracing and valuing the unique qualities of all people, School on Wheels delivers programs and builds networks that contribute to ending homelessness through education.
