The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Join our team and make a difference in the life of a homeless child by volunteering just one hour a week. We are currently in need of volunteers who can tutor 1 on 1 with a student during after school hours (after 3pm) in East LA. Some group tutoring and Saturday opportunities also available. No previous tutoring or teaching experience is required, only a love of learning and a willingness to make a real and lasting impact on a young person's life.
School on Wheels is a nonprofit organization that has been providing educational assistance to homeless children since 1993. Apply to be a School on Wheels tutor and in one hour a week you can impact two lives: yours and theirs. As a tutor and mentor, you will help your student to fill in the gaps in their education, and you will learn from them, too. Our wonderful staff provides all training and support. Please click "I Want to Help" above to find out how you can join us and thousands of tutors who are making a difference in the lives of homeless children!
