The 2019-2020 Homework Help program will be offered September 9, 2019 through June 11, 2020. Our dedicated volunteers support K-12 students by helping them develop literacy and math skills, understand homework assignments, and prepare for college and careers.
Volunteers tutor students in various academic subjects and may also specialize in English, math and science. Most of the students at Homework Help attend elementary and middle schools. Please watch a short video to learn more.
We request a volunteer commitment throughout the school year. Volunteers will be scheduled to provide Homework Help once a week when Seattle’s public schools are in session. Those volunteers who have variable job and/or school schedules can be scheduled as substitute Homework Helpers at least twice a month.
Volunteer Application and Orientation Process:
Please contact our Volunteer Services Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org to inquire about the Homework Help volunteer openings before you complete an online application. You are also welcome to call 206-386-4614 if you have questions.
The Volunteer Services Coordinator will read applications, interview people who meet the Homework Helper qualifications and conduct nationwide criminal background checks in July and August.
New volunteers will be invited to a Homework Help volunteer orientation at the Greenwood Branch on September 5 or the Douglass-Truth Branch on September 7. (Note: Volunteers who join the Homework Help program in September will be invited to the volunteer orientation at the Douglass-Truth Branch on October 5.)
All volunteers are also asked to participate in the Seattle Tutoring Coalition’s All City Tutor Training at the Central Library on October 19.
