ORGANIZATION: The Seattle Public Library

  • 11 people are interested

The Seattle Public Library provides homework help and learning activities for K-12 students throughout the school year until June 12, 2025. Volunteers support students with their homework assignments and with developing literacy, mathematics and study skills.

The Homework Help Program supports diverse communities in Seattle. Volunteers and Library staff support students to advance racial equity and close the education opportunity gap for students. Volunteers provide a supportive learning environment where students and their families are welcome.

Volunteers must be comfortable tutoring youth in various subjects on a drop-in basis. Because the Homework Help Program primarily serves elementary school students, we are seeking volunteers who enjoy helping kids with reading and math.

We request a volunteer commitment for the entire school year (or at least six months). Volunteers will be scheduled to provide Homework Help once a week when Seattle’s public schools are in session. Those volunteers who are unable to make a weekly commitment can be scheduled as substitute Homework Helpers at least twice a month.

Below are the volunteer openings for weekly and substitute Homework Helpers at the NewHolly Branch, 7058 32nd Ave. S.

  • Thursday, 5:30 p.m. until 7:00 p.m.

Homework Helpers must be a high school graduate and have completed at least one quarter of college or a vocational program.

If you would like to tutor youth at the NewHolly Branch, please send an email to volunteer@spl.org to request a volunteer application. Thanks!
