About

The 2018-2019 Homework Help program will offered from Sept. 10, 2018 through June 13, 2019. Volunteers support students’ success in school by helping them develop literacy and math skills, understand homework assignments, and prepare for college. Volunteers tutor students in various academic subjects and may also specialize in subjects, such as English, math and science.

Most of the students who participate in Homework Help attend elementary and middle schools. Volunteers interact with children and teens in small groups and individually.

We request a volunteer commitment for the entire school year. Volunteers will be scheduled to provide Homework Help once a week when Seattle’s public schools are in session. Those volunteers who have variable job and/or school schedules can be scheduled as substitute Homework Helpers at least twice a month.

We are seeking additional volunteers for the following Homework Help volunteer shifts at the Beacon Hill Branch:

Monday, 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.
Wednesday, 3:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.

We ask that prospective volunteers submit their application by August 10, 2018 for the new school year's Homework Help program. However, we accept applications throughout the school year as we continue to place volunteers.

Contact volunteer@spl.org to request an application and if you have questions.
