Ways to help


SOWMA Mentors are caring adults who spend time helping a high school or college student navigate post-secondary plans and transitions, academics, and career goals. Our mentors help students build self-sufficiency and strengthen their commitment to pursue education and career goals; assist with job shadowing, internships, and job networking; and help a student identify available resources within their community. Mentors should be 25 years old, hold a college degree and be currently employed or recently retired.

Community Service Day

Make an appointment to visit our East Bridgewater headquarters to learn more about family homelessness and the educational needs of our students. Participate in projects such as preparing backpacks for children of all ages and sorting and organizing book donations. Get your family, school, place of worship or business involved and help pay forward the gift of education.

Volunteer Tutor

Tutors are paired with a student (grade K - 12) and work individually with that student for one hour a week for at least a full-term. School on Wheels provides free training and offers educational workshops and guidance throughout the semester. Volunteers serve as a consistent and caring role model as they help with homework, school projects and academic challenges. Tutors must be 18-years-old to tutor independently; otherwise those ages 14 - 18 must be accompanied by an adult.
