Tutor a homeless child w/ School on Wheels

September 21st, 2015

Location: 600 East 7th Street Los Angeles United States 90021
Duration: Ongoing
First Day : Sep 21, 2015

One in every 30 children in the United States experiences homelessness every year – that’s one student in every classroom in America; and, California has one of the highest homeless populations of any state. School on Wheels is a 501 (C)(3) nonprofit in Southern California with the mission of enhancing the education of children and youth who are homeless: those living in shelters, motels, camp grounds, their cars and in foster group homes. Volunteers are matched with a student and meet one hour each week in a public location to work on any academic area where the student is behind. Volunteers also mentor their students, helping them discover the satisfaction of learning and exploring career and educational options for their future.

No experience is necessary. Volunteers complete an online application including two references and volunteer availability. The organization provides training and continuing support while you are volunteering. To learn more about School on Wheels and to apply to become a volunteer, please visit our website
