The Homework Help volunteer openings for this school year have been filled. The 2018-2019 Homework Help program will offered from Sept. 10, 2018 through June 13, 2019. Prospective volunteers are asked to submit their application during July 1 - 31, 2018. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to request an application after June 25.
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.
