School on Wheels provides access to digital programs that engage students, fill academic gaps, and teach critical technology skills. Tutors use computers, smartphones, and tablets at their tutoring locations to better address the academic needs of students experiencing homelessness.

At our Digital Learning Centers and After School Programs, students engage with these programs in large groups with the help of our volunteer tutors. At these locations we also provide internet and a laptop for every student.
These sites also provide us with a space to test and implement the latest digital learning tools and programs such as Coding & Animation, Virtual Field Trips, and 3D Printing.
