How you help Volunteer tutors are our wheels—reaching students in six counties in Southern California and covering a span of 2,500 square miles. Becoming a volunteer tutor can be one of the most rewarding experiences of your life.
About us School on Wheels was founded in 1993 by Agnes Stevens, a retired schoolteacher, who understood the importance of education to students devastated by homelessness - and the unique challenges they face. We were then, and we remain, the only organization in Southern California dedicated exclusively to the educational needs of this fragile population.
