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

About School on Wheels


600 E 7th Street, Suite 109, Los Angeles, CA 90021, US

Mission Statement

To enhancing educational opportunities for children from kindergarten through twelfth grade who are experiencing homelessness.


Volunteering to tutor children experiencing homelessness with School on Wheels is a one-hour-a-week commitment and no teaching experience is needed. Volunteering with School on Wheels is an opportunity to share something significant with a child and in return gain meaning in your own life. You can make a difference by supporting children who live in local shelters, motels, foster group homes, and vehicles.

Opportunities: We have both online and in-person opportunities in Santa Barbara, Ventura, Los Angeles, Orange, San Bernardino, Riverside, and San Diego ( online only ) counties. You can also volunteer at our Learning Center in Downtown LA with staff and other volunteers. Many children go to the Learning Center after school and throughout the summer.

The process to become a volunteer includes a few easy steps: fill out our application, attend a virtual training, provide two references, and complete a background check.
