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

Our volunteer tutors work with students in Grades K - 12.  Tutors are paired with a student and work one-on-one for one hour a week.  Our tutors come from a variety of backgrounds and professions and range in age from young adults to retirees.  We offer free training and provide ample support and guidance throughout the semester.  In fact many of our tutors stay for years as they see first-hand the profound impact they have on students who need a 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.

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.

Last year Massachusetts Public Schools identified 21,221 students impacted by homelessness. In the 2016-2017 academic year, our goal was to give out 1,600 full-stocked backpacks in our South Coast communities; but the demand exceeded 2,400 and we delivered thanks to YOU!

We promise to continue to deliver to even more kids as the demand is higher than expected; and we need your help to restock our shelves.

Stage a supply drive with your school, business, place of worship or neighbors and board our bus for kids!
