Do you want to make a positive impact on a child's learning journey? Volunteer as a Tutor at Solid Ground's and Point Housing!

We're looking for strong problem solvers who can bring their experience in education or social services to provide respectful, nonjudgmental, positive, creative, flexible and consistent tutoring support for youth.

At Solid Ground, we believe poverty is solvable. Solid Ground combines direct services with advocacy to meet basic needs, nurture success, and spread change. Through our programs, people gain stability and build skills that equip them to move forward in their lives. Our housing campuses provide transitional housing, affordable permanent housing, and onsite support services, including youth tutoring, for formerly unhoused families and individuals.

Volunteer tutors help students with homework, reading and basic math skills and other subjects in 1:1 or group settings under the guidance of a Children's Group Specialist staff. Sessions are held weekday evenings during the school year and during the summer (schedule to be determined).

About Solid Ground

Location:

1501 N 45TH ST, SEATTLE, WA 98103, US

Mission Statement

Our mission... Solid Ground works to end poverty and undo racism and other oppressions that are root causes of poverty. Our vision... Solid Ground believes our community can move beyond poverty and oppression to a place where all people have access to quality housing, nutritious food, equal justice and opportunities to thrive. Our values... Solid Ground is committed to working with compassion, integrity, accountability, creativity and an anti-oppression approach to end homelessness, hunger, inequality and other barriers to social justice. We value collaboration and leadership from the communities we serve.

Description

Our history...

Solid Ground was founded in 1974 by community leaders and concerned citizens of one of Seattle's then most economically devastated neighborhoods, Fremont. Originally called the Fremont Public Association, our services - emergency food bank, clothing bank, and employment program - reflected the desperate needs and determined response of a mobilized and committed neighborhood.

Solid Ground today...

As the scope and severity of homelessness and poverty have increased over the years, so too have our reach to our greater community and our range of services. Now based in Seattle’s Wallingford neighborhood, our 30 programs and services help more than 60,000 households each year overcome poverty and build better futures throughout King County and beyond.
