Volunteers will work with elementary and middle school students.

Volunteer Testimonials :

"Tutoring with Schools on Wheels is one of the most rewarding experiences that you can have. You'll work with your student on their good days, bad days, and all those in between. You'll encourage them when they struggle and celebrate them when they succeed. You'll learn about their hopes and fears and see the world from their perspective. It's a simple commitment, but the impact you can make on a student's life cannot be overstated - I really can't recommend it enough!" -Volunteer Tutor, Caleb.

Tutoring usually happens Monday-Thursday between 4-7 pm. As a volunteer tutor, you will receive in-depth training and ongoing support from our award-winning staff. We will provide you with a curriculum to use in your tutoring sessions!
