ORGANIZATION: School on Wheels


While all students have been affected by the pandemic, unhoused students are disproportionately experiencing adverse educational outcomes. Become a volunteer tutor today and help students get back on track.

"If you are considering becoming a volunteer, do not hesitate! It is an unparalleled and invaluable experience for both you and your student. Becoming a volunteer gives you the chance to change a child’s life for the better, and to help them discover the wonder of learning and growing as a student. Although not every session will be easy and rewarding, the gradual process of aiding a student’s academic career is priceless." - Volunteer Tutor, Erika

We offer both online and in-person tutoring opportunities. Tutoring usually happens on weekdays between 3 pm-7 pm. We provide in-depth training and ongoing support to all our tutors. Read what our tutors have to say about volunteering with School on Wheels:

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.
