Library needs Homework Helpers

Local kids and the Seattle Public Library need your help with homework. Volunteers are currently being sought for the Library’s Homework Help program at two Beacon Hill branch libraries, the Beacon Hill branch and the NewHolly branch.

Volunteers will help students (mostly ESL) in grades one through 12 with homework assignments in school subjects including English, history, math, science, and more. Volunteers must have completed at least one year of college, and have experience as a tutor, parent, or teacher.
