24. Tutor Homeless Children
The stress of being homeless isn't something felt only by the adults of
homeless families--the children reflect it, too. And it can affect their school
performance. It's easy for these youngsters to fall behind their classmates in
learning--often resulting in a decision to give up and drop out.
A tutor can make all the difference. Just having adult attention can spur
children to do their best.
Many Programs exist in shelters, transitional housing programs, and schools
that require interested volunteers. Or begin you own tutor volunteer corps at
your local shelter. It takes nothing more than a little time.
