Tutor to Transform Lives

There are more students who need tutoring than we have volunteers and we need your help to meet our growing needs. When you dedicate just one hour a week to tutor, you help children impacted by homelessness succeed academically.

We have daytime and evening opportunities available and will work with you to find the time and location that fits your schedule best. More than 330 volunteer tutors are currently filling the majority of our needs across our 15 partner sites, but we have immediate openings at the following locations and times.

Daytime Opportunities

To become a School on Wheels tutor, you must be at least 11 years of age. Ages 11-13 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Tutors are asked to commit to one hour each week for a 15-17 week semester.

Sample Post Language

Homelessness can happen at any point in a child’s life and without the right intervention, kids can rapidly fall behind their housed peers academically.

At School on Wheels, we meet children and their families wherever they are in their educational journey. Our tutoring and wraparound services ensure that we are able to help students overcome educational obstacles and meet critical academic milestones.
