Become a Tutor

Our volunteer tutors help us provide focused support to school-aged children experiencing homelessness in schools and shelters throughout Indianapolis. No educational background is necessary. We provide training and on-site support. Children as young as 11 can volunteer with a guardian, and individuals 14 and older can volunteer independently. Volunteer opportunities are Monday through Thursday each week, with daytime and early evening shifts available. We are now accepting volunteer tutor applications for summer and Fall 2022 opportunities!

Join a Committee

School on Wheels is currently looking for individuals to join the Development Committee, Event Committee, IDEA Committee, or SPOKES.

The Development Committee is responsible for identifying means of raising revenue to support the fundraising efforts of School on Wheels. Contact Amber Ewing Kostoff for more information at amber@indysow.org.

Individuals who volunteer with the Event Committee will help with events throughout the year and secure items and experiences for our annual auction that raises funds for our tutoring and education-based case management services. Contact Shannon Cochran for more information at shannon@indysow.org.

The IDEA Committee is a group of volunteers dedicated to broadening volunteers, staff, and board to be more representative of the children, families, and community in which we work and serve. This committee assists the organization in developing and implementing changes that ensure that School on Wheels becomes the most diverse, equitable, and inclusive organization possible. Contact Fatima Johnson for more information at fatima@indysow.org.

SPOKES is School on Wheels’ Community Outreach Group for young professionals and provides opportunities to build relationships with like-minded professionals who care about the city of Indianapolis and the youth who live here. Contact Fatima Johnson for more information at fatima@indysow.org or Apply to join SPOKES today!

Office Projects

During the week, we often need help stuffing backpacks, organizing supplies, helping with mailings, and preparing tutoring resources or other special projects. If you would like to volunteer as an individual or with a group, please fill out our volunteer form. Due to COVID, group opportunities are limited, and we cannot accommodate large groups in the office.
