We Appreciate Our Volunteers

April is National Volunteer Appreciation Month and every year School on Wheels hosts appreciation events throughout Southern California.  We invite our volunteer tutors and staff and get together to celebrate. It is a great opportunity for volunteers to meet each other and share stories about our students and their successes. School on Wheels volunteers are the best! They dedicate their time to tutoring homeless students and ask nothing in return. During these annual appreciation events, each Regional Coordinator awards volunteers who spend 100 or more hours volunteering with a Presidential Volunteer Service Award.  This year we awarded 250 volunteers with this prestigious award.  To see the full list of volunteers you can click here.

Above are photos from events hosted in Ventura, Los Angeles, Long Beach and Inland Empire.

School on Wheels is always in need of volunteers ages 12 and older that want to make a positive difference in the life of a homeless student. We work with school age children that are living in temporary or homeless situations and provide them with one-on-one tutoring, backpacks, school supplies and all the tools they need to succeed in school. If you have one hour a week or more to spare and would like to join our amazing volunteer team please consider applying to become a volunteer tutor with our organization today!
