Volunteer tutors are being sought to help young people through the local Friends of the Homeless shelter. Brockton-based School on Wheels of Massachusetts runs a program in which tutors visit shelters, hotels, and elementary schools in Norwell, Brockton, and Stoughton to help students in kindergarten through grade 12 with their school work. “Essentially, they’re filling in layers of learning that might be missing due to frequent moves and school absences,” said operations director Robin Gilbert. The tutors work with students after school for one or two hours a week. No experience is needed, but volunteers must be at least 18 years old and attend an orientation session and workshop. For more information, visit or contact Gilbert at robin@sowma.orgor or 508-587-9091.
