ORGANIZATION: School on Wheels

Online tutoring

When schools closed, our students lost the single greatest source of stability in their lives. With its structure and normalcy (as well as food and caring adults), school was a respite from the trauma of homelessness. Join the volunteer tutor team at School on Wheels and make a positive difference in the life of a student living in a shelter, motel, vehicle, or group home. Our volunteers meet their students online and we provide all the training!
