Are you passionate about education? Become an online volunteer tutor today and help a child experiencing homelessness reach their learning goals.
Just one hour a week of virtual tutoring makes a big difference for a student. After completing the application process, you will be matched with a child or youth based on your availability and tutoring skillset. It will be one of the most rewarding experiences of your life!
Becoming a volunteer can be one of the most rewarding experiences of your life. We are currently seeking online volunteer tutors who
- are 18 and older,
- live in California,
- have stable high-speed internet access,
- have a computer with a webcam, and
- are comfortable tutoring in a digital environment.
The Application Process
After you complete the application we will send you a link to our 45-minute orientation, to watch at your convenience.
Next, we will invite you to register for a live online introductory training session.
All volunteers must also complete a Live Scan fingerprint background check. Please note: this can be completed prior to training, as well.
After you are approved to tutor, your School on Wheels coordinator will train you in our virtual classroom. By that time, they will be in the process of reviewing your volunteer preferences and identifying the ideal student to make the perfect student/tutor match!
As a volunteer tutor, you will be joining a team of dedicated and committed volunteers. We ask that you are able to:
- Tutor consistently for a minimum of one hour per week typically between the hours of 3 p.m. to 7 p.m.
- Complete our advanced training after three months of tutoring.
- Demonstrate patience, persistence, and an innate love of learning.
- Commit to a full year of volunteering.
