HOMEWORK HOUSE VOLUNTEERS: Reaching Out, Giving Back, Making a Difference
“I look forward to coming to Homework House every week. The kids are always happy to see us and work with their tutors. There’s never a day with them that we don’t laugh while we learn. I’m so happy to use my teaching skills and watch their progress. Students & tutors are blessed to have Homework House!” ~ Bobby C.
What does a typical Homework House volunteer look like? Our volunteers are high school and college students. They’re police officers, nurses, teachers, lawyers, doctors, and retired seniors. They’re community members like you who want to give back and make a difference in a child’s life. The individual connection that our volunteer tutors make with the kids is crucial to helping them succeed. The positive role modeling, the caring support, the words of encouragement, the relationship that the tutors and the children develop over the year - these all have a profoundly positive impact on the children’s academic and social outcomes.
Each year, over 250 community members volunteer their time and resources to helping Homework House kids. Volunteer opportunities are available Monday through Friday during the school year and in our summer program. Do you have a special skill or talent that you’d like to share? We always need volunteers to help out with our Club Friday activities.
