Thanks for your interest in our tutoring program.  Our mission is to support the academic, social and emotional growth of students impacted by homelessness.  

Volunteer tutors come from a variety of backgrounds and professions and range in age from young adults to retirees.  They work with students in grades K - 12.  Tutors are paired with a student and work one-on-one for one hour a week.   We offer free training and provide educational workshops, support and guidance throughout the semester.  Many of our tutors stay for years as they see first-hand the impact they have on students who need a consistent and caring role model to help with homework, school projects and academic challenges. 

Tutors must be 18-years-old to tutor independently; otherwise those ages 14 - 18 must be accompanied by an adult. 

Volunteer TUTORs are required to attend one of the following

Our College Plus Mentor Program was created with the goal of helping each one of our high school and college students build the skills necessary to become self-sufficient adults. SOWMA Mentors are caring adults who spend time monthly helping a high school or college student impacted by homelessness with post-secondary transition, academics, and career goals.

Throughout the 2017-2018 academic year, our projection was to give out 2,500 fully-stocked backpacks to meet the needs of students throughout the South Coast communities living in shelters and transitional housing.  The demand exceeded 2,850 and we delivered thanks to the generosity of individuals, businesses, civic and faith-based organizations.  We are grateful to those listed here! 

We promise to deliver to even more children and youth this upcoming school year and expect the demand will grow. 

You can help restock our shelves by staging a supply drive asking for items listed below.  Kids Helping Kids is a wonderful way to teach your children about the needs of their peers - and we have many ways to get kids involved.
