We need Homework Help volunteers! Spread the word!

HHThe Seattle Public Library is seeking volunteers to assist K-12 students with homework assignments and developing literacy and mathematics skills throughout the 2014-2015 school year.

Anne Vedella, the Library’s volunteer services coordinator, said successful Homework Helpers are comfortable interacting with students of all ages individually and in small groups.
