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

Our tutoring program is designed to foster the academic, social and emotional growth of students impacted by homelessness and hardship.  We match volunteers with a student at one of our 18 family shelter site locations.

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 (Pre-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 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 grade-level and location of your choice. 


    Boston, Brockton, Middleboro, Taunton, Plymouth/Kingston, Norwell, Fall River, New Bedford, Attleboro, Weymouth, Rockland and Stoughton.  

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