The Seattle Public Library is seeking Homework Help volunteers at 10 Library locations for the 2016-2017 school year. The Library is looking for people who have a passion for helping K-12 students learn and succeed in school.

Homework Help volunteers will mentor K-12 students who are working on homework assignments, developing literacy and mathematics skills and preparing for college and careers. They provide help with all academic subjects up to the eighth grade level and may specialize in subjects up to the college-prep level.

Most of the students are first-generation Americans who speak a language other than English at home. Volunteers must be comfortable interacting with students of all ages in small groups and individually.

  Volunteers will provide Homework Help once a week when public schools are in session, and a commitment throughout the school year is requested. Visit www.spl.org/homeworkvolunteer for more information. Volunteer applications are due by July 25, 2016.
