The Martin County Library System is in need of committed volunteers looking to make a difference in the community by investing in students’ education. If you are a retired educator or college student majoring in education, or relate well to children and desire to inspire learning, this is the position for you!

Homework Helpers provide a safe and welcoming learning environment with one-on-one homework assistance to students in grades K-12 during after-school hours and throughout summer. You will be equipped with all necessary library resources and technology.

Volunteers serve a minimum of two hours per week and are needed at all six libraries. Completion of an interview and background screening is required.

The program began in 1999 and over the past 14 years, Homework Helpers have served an average of 4,000 students and their parents each year in varying capacities. From assisting with studying for the FCAT to assembling science fair projects and helping high school students with college and scholarship applications, Homework Helpers play an integral role in the future of our community!

Come be a part of our team! It’s as easy as contacting MCLS Volunteer Coordinator Terry Dick at 772-219-4906 or
