The 2018-2019 Homework Help program will offered from Sept. 10, 2018 through June 13, 2019. Homework Helpers support students’ success in school by helping them develop literacy and mathematics skills, understand homework assignments, and prepare for college. Volunteers tutor students in all academic subjects and may also specialize in high school subjects. Most of the students are elementary and middle school students who speak a language other than English at home.

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

Homework Help locations: Beacon Hill, Broadview, Columbia, Douglass-Truth, Greenwood, High Point, Lake City, NewHolly, Northgate, Rainier Beach and South Park branches.

Prospective volunteers are asked to submit their application during July 2 - August 15, 2018. Contact volunteer@spl.org to inquire about volunteer openings and request an application after June 28.
