Homework Helpers coach K-12 students who are developing literacy and math skills, working on homework assignments, and preparing for college. They provide help with all academic subjects and may specialize in college-prep subjects. Most of the students are first generation Americans who speak a language other than English at home. Volunteers must be comfortable tutoring children and teens.

A volunteer commitment throughout the school year is requested. Volunteers provide Homework Help once a week when the public schools are in session.
