About School on Wheels


600 East 7th Street, Ste 109, Los Angeles, CA 90021, US

Mission Statement

Since 1993, the mission of School on Wheels has never wavered: to enhance educational opportunities for children who are experiencing homelessness from kindergarten through twelfth grade. Our goal is to shrink the gaps in their learning and provide them with the highest level of education possible. Our program serves as a consistent support system for our students during a time of great stress and fear.


School on Wheels provides academic tutoring to children living in shelters, motels, vehicles, group foster homes, and on the streets. We provide students stability in a time of stress and transition and help them achieve educational success so that they may break the cycle of homelessness and poverty. We have opportunities in

  • Los Angeles County
  • Orange County
  • Riverside County
  • Santa Barbara County
  • San Bernardino County
  • San Diego County
  • Ventura County

Volunteers are asked to commit a minimum of 1 hour a week for a year. Tutoring usually happens on weekdays between 3 pm-7 pm. We provide in-depth training and ongoing support to all our tutors.

We are urgently seeking both in-person and online volunteer tutors who:

are 18 and older,

live in California,

are comfortable tutoring in-person and through a digital environment.

Requirements: Complete the school on wheels application and training, complete a background check and provide 2 non-family references.
