Get to Know Us
UB Homework Helpers is a student-founded organization at the University at Buffalo with the goal of giving back to our local community and enriching students' lives. We know that some students need extra help and are not able to afford tutoring, which can lead them to fall behind. We wanted to find a way to provide this resource to students for free. So, we started a volunteer-based program at our school to provide free tutoring to local students.
UB Homework Helpers is made possible by Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) and her team. AOC's Homework Helpers was launched by Team AOC in 2020 in order to assist families with the demands of online learning. Since then, AOC's Homework Helpers has provided families across New York City with over 5,000 hours of virtual homework assistance.
