School On Wheels
School on Wheels enhances educational opportunities for homeless children from kindergarten through twelfth grade. The goal is to shrink the gaps in their education and provide them with the highest level of education possible.
Hundreds of volunteers work one-on-one with children whose homelessness prevents them from getting the academic stability and help they desperately need. The heart of the School on Wheels’ programs is the volunteer tutors who come from all backgrounds and professions, with a shared goal: to reach out to a child, to teach, to mentor, and assist in their educational life.
WHY SCHOOL ON WHEELS IS A BRIGHT *
While School on Wheels serves homeless children, we know firsthand that the dedicated, caring, devoted tutors receive as much benefit from the collaboration as the students. We treasure an organization that not only understands the value of partnership for all parties, but has created built-in sustainability in its model. Head of the class!
