COVID-19 Update: We are not currently onboarding any new volunteers. We are looking forward to the time that volunteers will be back serving in our libraries.
We need volunteers! Do you have what it takes?
Learn more about volunteer opportunities at the library here.
If you have questions or are interested in volunteering as a homework coach, contact the the Do Your Homework @ the Library program at 619-238-6687.
Is the program open to students from all school districts and San Diego County at large?
Yes. Homework Help is available to all students.
Where can I go for in-person Homework Help?
Am I guaranteed a spot?
There are no guaranteed spots. We will help as many students as possible during the session allotted time.
Can high school or college students receive homework help?
They can receive help, but our homework help coaches are trained to assist Kindergarten to 8th grade students. If the library staff is unable to help, they will provide alternative resources that may help the student.
How does email request for a virtual homework assistance session work? Is it on a first come, first served basis?
No. All students that email will receive the same meeting link and passcode that is unique to the specific session. Students will be assisted as they come in to the session. The sooner they come in to the session the sooner they will receive assistance.
How is virtual homework assistance provided? Do I receive one-on-one assistance?
Homework assistance will be provided in Zoom Breakout Rooms and several students may be in the same room at the same time. Students will be assisted in rotation. TLCs (Tutor/Learning Coordinators) will assist students with their questions and once that question is answered rotate to assist another student in the Breakout Room. Two TLCs will be available per session.
