(BROCKTON, MA) – School on Wheels of Massachusetts (SOWMA), the only organization in Massachusetts providing customized one-on-one tutoring, backpacks, school supplies, college assistance, educational advocacy, and parental support for students impacted by homelessness, is seeking volunteer tutors and book-lovers for its Summer Reading Odyssey, a five-week program beginning the week of July 7.

Tutors will meet for one hour each week with a small group of students for reading and writing activities. Students’ progress will be tracked along the way, and the program will end with a celebration at each tutoring site!

The program is being run at the following locations:

• Family Life Center, Brockton, Tuesdays, 6:30-7:30 pm

• Lincoln Tech, Brockton, Wednesdays, 6:00-7:00 pm
• Quality Inn, Brockton, Mondays, 6:00-7:00 pm

All volunteers must attend a 2.5-hour tutor training on either Wednesday, June 25, 6-8:30 pm, or Saturday, June 28, 12-2:30 pm. Tutors who have attended SOWMA’s regular tutor training do not need to stay for the last 30 minutes of the summer program training. Register online at For more information, contact Robin Gilbert, 508-587-9091,
