More than 24,000 students enrolled in Massachusetts public schools are identified as homeless.  

Since the onset of the pandemic in March, 2020, our tutoring program has become more important than ever.  In addition to helping with homework and school projects, our volunteer tutors play a major role in the social and emotional needs of students. 

We adhere to public school and shelter partner safety protocols and guidelines and orchestrate our tutoring accordingly.  Some of our 18 site locations will resume in person this fall; while others may include a hybrid or remote tutoring model.  If you are interested in becoming a tutor, we would love to hear from you!

TUTORING AT A GLANCE 

Volunteer Tutors come from a variety of backgrounds and range in age from young adults to retirees.  

Tutors are paired with one student (K - 12) and meet either once or twice a week for an hour-long session.  In addition to homework help and school projects, tutors can volunteer to assist with GED and HiSET exam preparation. 

The tutoring calendar follows the public school year and runs during early evening hours from Monday - Thursday.  

We provide free training and professional development workshops throughout the year.

Each of our 18 tutoring site locations is managed by a SOWMA Site Coordinator, who oversees the tutoring sessions. 


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

  • Tutors must fill out an online application and complete an orientation and training. 

  • Once trained, you will be matched with a student at a site located in one the following communities:  Brockton, Middleboro, Dorchester, Taunton, Plymouth/Kingston, Norwell, Fall River, New Bedford, Attleboro, Weymouth and Stoughton.  

It is important that tutors honor their time commitment (one hour a week for at least a full term) so that students can be assured of reliable and consistent support. 

         TERM ONE:   SEPTEMBER - DECEMBER
         TERM TWO:  JANUARY - JUNE
