The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Volunteering as a tutor for a homeless child is a meaningful way to impact your community. School on Wheels is the only agency in Southern California to provide tutoring and educational mentoring to homeless youth. Apply to work at the Skid Row learning Center to meet other volunteers and make the world a better place!
The Skid Row Learning Center provides group and one on one tutoring Monday through Saturday to the homeless students (grades K-12) living in shelters and hotels in Downtown Los Angeles. Evening tutoring sessions are also available at the Union Rescue Mission where many of our students currently reside. The SRLC sometimes offers enrichment activities for students and their tutors which includes field trips to local points of interest.
