ORGANIZATION: The Seattle Public Library

  • 14 people are interested

The Seattle Public Library provides homework help and learning activities for K-12 students throughout the school year until June 12, 2025. Volunteers support students with their homework assignments and with developing literacy, mathematics and study skills.

The Homework Help Program supports diverse communities in Seattle. Volunteers and Library staff support students to advance racial equity and close the education opportunity gap for students. Volunteers provide a supportive learning environment where students and their families are welcome.

Volunteers must be comfortable tutoring children and teens in various subjects on a drop-in basis.

We request a volunteer commitment throughout the school year (or at least six months). Volunteers will be scheduled to provide Homework Help once a week when Seattle’s public schools are in session. Those volunteers who are unable to make a weekly commitment can be scheduled as substitute Homework Helpers at least twice a month.

Below are the openings for weekly and substitute Homework Helpers at the Lake City Branch. Additional volunteers are especially needed on Tuesday and Thursday evenings.

  • Tuesday, 4:30 p.m. until 6:00 p.m.
  • Tuesday, 6:00 p.m. until 7:30 p.m.
  • Wednesday, 6:00 p.m. until 7:30 p.m.
  • Thursday, 4:30 p.m. until 6:00 p.m.
  • Thursday, 6:00 p.m. until 7:30 p.m.

Homework Helpers must be a high school graduate and have completed at least one quarter of college or a vocational program. If you would like to tutor youth at the Lake City Branch, please send an email to volunteer@spl.org to request a volunteer application. Thanks!
