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-Friday between 3-7 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!

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.

You can make a difference by supporting children who live in local shelters, motels, foster group homes, and vehicles.

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.
